Enhancement Advisory crash enhancement update

Advisory: RHEA-2013:1565-1
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-11-20
Last updated on: 2013-11-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated crash packages that add various enhancements are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The crash packages provide a self-contained tool that can be used to investigate
live systems and kernel core dumps created from the netdump, diskdump, kdump,
and Xen/KVM "virsh dump" facilities from Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This update adds the following enhancements:

* Currently, dump files created by the makedumpfile utility using the snappy
compression format are now readable by the crash utility. The snappy format is
suitable for the crash dump mechanism that requires stable performance in any
situation with enterprise application use. (BZ#902141)

* With this update, dump files created by the makedumpfile utility using the LZO
compression format are now readable by the crash utility. The LZO compression
format is fast and stable for randomized data. (BZ#902144)

* This update adds support for compressed dump files created by the makedumpfile
utility that were generated on systems with physical memory requiring more than
44 bits. (BZ#1006622)

* This update fixes faulty panic-task backtraces generated by the bt command in
KVM guest dump files. The bt command now shows a trace when the guest operating
system is panicking. (BZ#1017930)

* This update fixes the CPU number display on systems with 255 or more CPUs
during the initialization, by the set command, the ps command, and by all
commands that display the per-task header consisting of the task address, PID,
CPU and command name. Without the patch, for CPU 255, the sys command displays
"NO_PROC_ID", and the other commands show a "-" for the CPU number; for CPU
numbers greater than 255, garbage values would be displayed in the CPU number
field. (BZ#1019483)

Users of crash are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add these
enhancements.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant
to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red
