About Crash Dumps
On a running system, the hypervisor's memory is completely off-limits to dom0. If
the hypervisor crashes, however, the resulting panic dump will generate a core file
that provides a unified view of both xVM and dom0. In this core
file, xVM appears as a Solaris kernel module named xpv. For example:
The following applies to crash dumps:
If a dom0 crashes with a standard Solaris panic, the dump will include only the dom0.
When the hypervisor itself panics, the resulting dump includes the xVM state as well as the dom0 state.
