  • 2. kexec • apel sistem pentru ˆ arcarea ˆ memorie si lansarea ˆ executie ınc˘ ın , ın , a unui nou kernel, f˘r˘ a restarta sistemul ˆ modul traditional a a ın , • utilitar pentru controlul acestei facilit˘ti a, # kexec -l /vmlinuz --initrd=/initrd.img --reuse-cmdline # kexec -e kexec/kdump: reboot rapid si debug postmortem Matei Conovici , 1 RLUG Meeting, Decembrie 2009
  • 3. Sumar al optiunilor: , scrat:~# kexec -h Usage: kexec [OPTION]... [kernel] Directly reboot into a new kernel -h, --help Print this help. -v, --version Print the version of kexec. -f, --force Force an immediate kexec, don’t call shutdown. -l, --load Load the new kernel into the current kernel. -p, --load-panic Load the new kernel for use on panic. -u, --unload Unload the current kexec target kernel. -e, --exec Execute a currently loaded kernel. 1-1
  • 4. Supported kernel file types and options: elf-x86 --append=STRING Set the kernel command line to STRING --reuse-cmdline Use kernel command line from running system. --initrd=FILE Use FILE as the kernel’s initial ramdisk. --args-linux Pass linux kernel style options --args-elf Pass elf boot notes Architecture options: --serial=<port> Specify the serial port for debug output --serial-baud=<baud_rate> Specify the serial port baud rate --console-vga Enable the vga console --console-serial Enable the serial console 1-2
  • 5. Utilizare • ˆ Debian GNU/Linux, pachetul kexec-tools instaleaz˘ scrip- In a turile de init necesare pentru reboot • ˆ /etc/default/kexec se alege dac˘ la reboot se foloseste kexec In a , # Load a kexec kernel (true/false) LOAD KEXEC=true kexec/kdump: reboot rapid si debug postmortem Matei Conovici , 2 RLUG Meeting, Decembrie 2009
