postmort - perform post-mortem on PC Minix core files SYNOPSIS
postmort [-dpt] -c corefile -s symbfile OPTIONS
-c Use the named corefile -d Dump all text symbols and segment data -p Display the kernel process table -s Use the named symbol file -t Display a stack backtrace EXAMPLES
postmort # display the data from the file 'core' DESCRIPTION
Postmort does a simple static analysis of a PC Minix core file; By default, it looks for the file 'core' in the local directory and loads that for analysis; it also searches for the file 'symbol.out', and if that fails 'a.out', expecting them to contain symbol information for the core file. It is not a fatal error if the symbol files don't exist. The stack backtrace is slightly tricky, and may go on longer than is really justified, since there's no easy way for it to know when to stop. Treat its results with caution. POSTMORT(1)

crashinfo -- analyze a core dump of the operating system SYNOPSIS
crashinfo [-d crashdir] [-n dumpnr] [-k kernel] [core] DESCRIPTION
The crashinfo utility analyzes a core dump saved by savecore(8). It generates a text file containing the analysis in the same directory as the core dump. For a given core dump file named vmcore.XX the generated text file will be named core.txt.XX. By default, crashinfo analyzes the most recent core dump in the core dump directory. A specific core dump may be specified via either the core or dumpnr arguments. Once crashinfo has located a core dump, it analyzes the core dump to determine the exact version of the kernel that generated the core. It then looks for a matching kernel file under each of the subdirectories in /boot. The location of the kernel file can also be explicitly provided via the kernel argument. Once crashinfo has located a core dump and kernel, it uses several utilities to analyze the core including dmesg(8), fstat(1), iostat(8), ipcs(1), kgdb(1), netstat(1), nfsstat(1), ps(1), pstat(8), and vmstat(8). The options are as follows: -d crashdir Specify an alternate core dump directory. The default crash dump directory is /var/crash. -n dumpnr Use the core dump saved in vmcore.dumpnr instead of the latest core in the core dump directory. -k kernel Specify an explicit kernel file.
