|| ||[PATCH]Diskdump - yet another crash dump function|
|| ||Thu, 27 May 2004 18:33:18 +0900|
Although I know about LKCD and netdump, I'm developing yet another crash
dump, which is a polling-based disk dump as netdump do. Because it
disables any interrupts during doing dump, it can avoid lots of problems
Diskdump disables interrupts, stops other cpus and writes to the
disk with polling mode. Therefore, unnecessary functions(like
interrupt handler) don't disturb dumping.
Before writing to the disk, diskdump checks its disk partition to
confirm whether it is a really dump device. Therefore, diskdump
doesn't overwrite filesystems by mistake.
Currently, diskdump supports only scsi disk(aic7xxx/aic79xx), but, I'm
planning to support IDE disk in the near future.
Diskdump can be downloaded from here.
Please see readme.txt which can be downloaded from this site.
