Netconsole is a Linux kernel module that sends all kernel log messages over
the network to another computer. It was designed to be as instantaneous as
possible, to enable the logging of even the most critical kernel bugs. It
works from IRQ contexts as well, and does not enable interrupts while sending
packets. Due to these unique needs, only IP networks, UDP packets and Ethernet
devices are supported.
This package contains a netconsole service that dynamically configures
netconsole by configuring one or more hosts by their names or IP addresses.
Documentation is available in the Linux kernel tree under
