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.
