The current crash-setup source is located here.
Pretty much is working nicely but it doesn't care for the debug source making it impossible to use the
crash> gdb list *<symbol> command right away. This is bug 997558 which should be worked on.
A further script would be really useful to build up the analysis environment on l3slave for core dumps of crashed user-space applications. The MF Open Enterprise Server (OES) has a tool called
NetIQ GetCore Utility which prepares such an environment with files
opencore.ini, the binaries of the executable and libs, and the core dump itself. The files it generates can be used as a base and prove that it is possible to build up a core dump analysis environment decoupled from the host system.
What it is missing is setting up the debug symbols and the debug source as well. I've done that manually already. So this is possible and should be automated.
Both these topics are efficiency improvement tasks for the L3 work.
