Requirements: .ePUB reader, 10mb
Overview: The Linux kernel is at the very core of arguably the world’s best production-quality OS. Debugging it, though, can be a complex endeavor. Linux Kernel Debugging is a thorough guide to advanced kernel debugging.

This book covers a range of debugging techniques in detail, starting with instrumentation-based debugging techniques, the kernel’s powerful Kprobes framework, printk, and friends. The book features two whole chapters devoted to the tools and techniques for debugging memory-related bugs. It also prepares you to interpret the underlying issue when the Linux kernel throws an oops. As you advance through the chapters, you’ll be able to demystify concurrency by learning what data races are and how to handle them, including the use of modern features like Kernel Concurrency Sanitizer (KCSAN). You’ll also discover how to overcome some thorny issues related to debugging and performance through detailed kernel-level tracing and learn to wield the power of Ftrace and its frontends. What’s more? The book shows you how to deal with kernel hangs and panic, leverage the venerable GDB tool within the kernel, and much more.
