There is possibility to run crash on live system, this has some drawbacks though:

  • not all its features are available (e.g. inspecting stacks of tasks),
  • crash may be intrusive (e.g. wr), i.e. danger for production systems,
  • time window for live session may be limited.

For userspace programs there is gcore utility (based on ptrace) that can take a coredump of a running program for deferred analysis.

Explore possibilities of implementing live dumping for kernel and attempt a live dump implementation.
