The common point of any platform operating under Linux, server, workstation, embedded hardware, is undoubtedly the Linux kernel. The tests or the implementation of such platforms in more or less extreme conditions or on more or less exotic material quite often lead to situations of partial blocking (oops) or total (panic) of the core.
The debug kernel training proposes to explore with the participant the system
that underlies the functioning of the kernel to better understand it and to know the related sources of information.
It also offers tools and methods
to collect the information needed for the last phase, which consists in analyzing the problem encountered. The participant is then able to either correct the malfunction or to transmit all of this information to the competent level. saving time on this analysis phase.
Know the sources of information related to the operation of the Linux kernel.
- To know how to collect in an exhaustive way the information related to a dysfunction of the nucleus.
- Know how to analyze the collected information.
Prerequisites for this training:
- knowledge of the Linux system
- basic knowledge in C
