Name

crashkernel — Reserve a portion of physical memory for kexec to use.

Synopsis

crashkernel= n [ KMG ]@ start [ KMG ]

Description

The kexec subsystem likes to have a portion of physical memory reserved for it. This option reserves that memory from the rest of the kernel and will switch to use it if the kernel panics. n specifies the amount of memory to reserve, and start specifies the location for this memory chunk. Both are measured in units of kilobytes (K), megabytes (M), or gigabytes (G).
