The system rebooted after the kernel panic though kernel.panic = 0.

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • "kernel.panic" sysctl is set to 0.
# sysctl kernel.panic
kernel.panic = 0
  • I believe that the system won't reboot at the time of the occurrence of kernel panic.

  • However the system crashed and rebooted after I ran echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger .

  • Why the system crashed and rebooted after I ran sysrq-c even though kernel.panic sysctl was set to 0?
