kdumpctl — control interface for kdump

Synopsis

kdumpctl COMMAND

Description

kdumpctl is used to check or control the kdump service. In most cases, you should use systemctl to start / stop / enable kdump service instead. However, kdumpctl provides more details for debug and a helper to setup ssh key authentication.

Commands

start

Start the service.

stop

Stop the service.

status

Prints the current status of kdump service. It returns non-zero value if kdump is not operational.

restart

Is equal to start; stop

propagate

Helps to setup key authentication for ssh storage since it's impossible to use password authentication during kdump.
