crashdc - Diagnostic data collection for a running or
/usr/bin/crashdc [system-kernel] [core-image]
The crashdc utility examines the core image of the operating
system to extract critical diagnostic data. This utility
is a shell script that invokes several tools and commands
that extract selected parameters of a running or a
crashed system (for example, system configuration, running
processes, and panic messages).
The arguments to the crashdc utility are the system kernel
and the core image. The default values are /vmunix and
/dev/mem, respectively. If you specify no arguments, the
crashdc utility examines the running system.
The system usually invokes the crashdc utility during system
startup. If the most recent core dump has been saved
by the savecore command, both the core image and the system
kernel (respectively vmcore.n and vmunix.n, where the
variable n is the crash number) are saved in the crash
directory (by default, /var/adm/crash). Also, the crashdc
utility saves the output as the file crash-data.n (where
the variable n is the crash number) in the crash directory.
The crashdc utility is invoked only if crash-data.n
output in the crash directory does not exist or is not
from the most recent crash.
