HP-UX system crashes (system panics) are rare, but when they do occur you want to be prepared to capture the contents of memory so that if necessary you can analyze (or have an expert analyze) the memory content to try to determine what caused the crash.

For a discussion on what happens when the HP-UX system crashes, and the elements of the crash dump cycle, read the section called “Abnormal Shutdowns” in the HP-UX System Administrator’s Guide: Overview volume.

Beginning with HP-UX 11i version 3, the preferred way to configure the dump behavior and dump devices on your system is to use the crashconf command. For details on using crashconf, see the crashconf(1M) manpage.

For additional information about configuring your system for crash dumps, see the following manpages:
