LKCD (Linux Kernel Crash Dumps)

The Linux Kernel Crash Dump (LKCD) project is designed to meet the needs of customers and system administrators wanting a reliable method of detecting, saving and examining system crashs. While more mature operating systems have provided these capabilities by default for years, Linux has yet to evolve to such a state. LKCD is an attempt to move Linux towards greater supportability.
