Reviews Write a review. Add to My Favorites. Linux kernel crash analysis is not an everyday topic. It is very likely a niche topic, which will interest only system administrators and professionals dabbling in the kernel. This tool allows the Linux system to write the contents of its memory when a crash occurs, so that they can be later analyzed for the root cause of the crash. Ideally, kernels never crash.
