RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for netdump (redhat section 8)

NETDUMP-CLIENT(8)			 System Programs			NETDUMP-CLIENT(8)

NAME
       netdump - send oops data and memory dumps over the network

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/init.d/netdump (start|stop|status|restart|propagate)

DESCRIPTION
       Loads  and  configures  the netdump kernel modules. Once these are loaded, when the kernel
       crashes it will send the oops message and a dump of physical memory to  the  machine  that
       runs the netdump-server. This can then be used to debug the problem using gdb and a kernel
       image.

OPTIONS
       start  Starts the netdump client service. Loads the kernel modules with the right options.

       stop   Unloads the kernel modules.

       status Shows the status of the netdump client

       restart
	      Restarts the netclient modules with new configurations.

       propagate
	      Sends the ssh public key needed to update the random key for each  netdump  session
	      to the netdump server.

FILES
       /etc/sysconfig/netdump
	      Configuration  for  the netdump client. You need to at least specify the address of
	      the machine running the netdump server here.

       /etc/sysconfig/netdump_id_dsa.pub
	      Public key for this machine. Used by the server to authenticate the  client.   This
	      must  be installed on the server, possibly by using the the propagate capability of
	      the netdump init script, which does:
	      cat /etc/sysconfig/netdump_id_dsa.pu | ssh netdump@$NETDUMPADDR cat '>>' /var/crash/.ssh/authorized_keys2
	      Where $NETDUMPADDR is the ip or name of the machine running the netdump server.
