Oracle Solaris Modular Debugger Guide

Command-Line Options

The crash -d, -n, and -w command-line options are not supported by mdb. The crash dump file and name list (symbol table file) are specified as arguments to mdb in the order of name list, crash dump file. To examine the live kernel, the mdb -k option should be specified with no additional arguments. Users who want to redirect the output of mdb to a file or other output destination, should either employ the appropriate shell redirection operator following the mdb invocation on the command line, or use the ::log built-in dcmd.
