We're proud to introduce a new Red Hat Access Labs app: KDump Helper.
KDump is a reliable kernel crash-dumping mechanism that captures crash dumps for troubleshooting issues like kernel crashes, hangs, and reboots. Setting up KDump usually requires a series of steps and configurations. We developed the KDump Helper app to simplify the process and reduce the effort required to set KDump up on your machines.
Input a minimum amount of information and this app will generate an all-in-one script for you to set up KDump with a very basic configuration, or you can generate a script to set up KDump with extended configurations for a number of particular scenarios like system hang, Process D state, or soft lockup.
Below is a screenshot to give you a quick look at this app, but try it yourself and have fun. And don't forget to let us know what you think! You can leave comments on the app info page.
