1.1 Notable Changes

Kdump

  • To simplify Kdump configuration, support has been added for the crashkernel=auto kernel parameter. For Xen, this parameter is supported only for Domain 0.

    Note

    If this parameter is enabled, the output of the dmesg command shows crashkernel=XM@0M. This is normal.

DTrace

  • The SDT (Statically Defined Tracing) provider has been improved so that probes for kernel modules can now be enabled. Previously you could only enable probes in the core kernel.

Netfilter

  • Xtables: IPv4/IPv6 packet logging (xt_LOG) driver updated.
