    Does kdump help much?



    I don't think one can get as much as info from a memory dump file by kdump.

    As compared with memory dump files on Windows, one can use WinDBG to get a lot of data structures from dump files.

    But on Linux, one just uses "bt" command to read the stack information from dump files.


    So do you use kdump or not? Do you think kdump helpful?

    Well I do not use kdump but here are my thoughts. First off linux distros use much less memory than windows which is why it seems windows works better. As for if it works well... not significantly or most likely not noticable but every little bit helps esepecially if your computer is low on RAM.

    I have found the tool "crash" can analyze a dump file well.
