TAPSET::PANIC(3stap) TAPSET::PANIC(3stap)

NAME

tapset::panic - systemtap panic tapset

DESCRIPTION

Functions in the panic tapset allow a probe handler to invoke the system panic routine with a user-specified message.

This may be used with a crash dump collection facility such as kexec/kdump in order to capture data for post-mortem debugging.

Due to the fact that this will bring the system to an immediate halt the functions in this tapset require guru mode.

panic
trigger a panic
See function::panic(3stap) for details.
