[Xen-devel] xencrash: analysis tool for Xen hypervisor


We are developing a crash analisys tool -- xencrash --
like "crash" for Xen hypervisor.

xencrash is based on "crash" command.
The attached patch is a prototype of xencrash and it 
makes "crash" command xencrash.

This is a prototype and support only x86. But I think
this is already usefull for developers of Xen hypervisor
(for x86).

Comments and requests are welcome.

To use xencrash:
- get crash-4.0-3.8.tar.gz form
- tar zxf crash-4.0-3.8.tar.gz
- cd crash-4.0-3.8
- zcat xencrash-4.0-3.8-0.1.patch.gz | patch -p1
- make xencrash

usage: xencrash xen-syms dump-file
   where dump-file is either
   - vmcore (whole memory dump image) get by kdump, or
   - xendump (the part of xen hypervisor) cut by dom0cut

xencrash supports only x86 now. (x86_64 and IA64 is under

Itsuro ODA <oda@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
