Real Linux Kernel Debugging in a Virtualized Environment

Registered by Elena Zannoni on 2012-05-05

Stefan Reimbold (<email address hidden>)

Linux in a virtualized environment opens a whole world of new options to
debug kernel problems. Running as a guest under z/VM you can look into the
memory of a live running kernel and control the execution instruction by
instruction.
This presentation will show you what insights you can get if you take a
deep dive look into the Linux kernel from a z/VM on a IBM System z.
The target audience are kernel or driver developers who want to debug the
interface of their code and the System z hardware or firmware.
