Fixed In Version: docker-1.8.2-9.el7
Doc Type: Release Note
Doc Text:
docker now supports the DWARF debug symbols The DWARF debug symbols are now included in the docker binaries. Previously, without the DWARF info, the ability to analyze Docker core files was very limited. This update makes debugging docker significantly easier. Additionally, DWARF is now also supported by the `kubernetes`, `etcd` and `flannel` packages.

Description James W. Mills 2015-11-10 16:21:32 EST
Description of problem:

debug symbols are currently not included in docker binaries, and we are unable to strip debug symbols into *debug packages (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1236317).

Without DWARF debug info, GSS is unable to analyze docker core files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

All versions of docker

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. generate a docker corefile
2. open the core file up in gdb

Actual results:

No real usable information can be obtained

Expected results:

docker core can be analyzed as effectively as any other core file.

Additional info:

Comment 5 Alex Jia 2015-11-20 05:31:21 EST
To run debuginfo-install docker and sqlite then use gdb attach PID of docker and generate a core file for gdb debugging, the result as follows.

# gdb attach `pidof docker`

NOTES: it still shows "Missing separate debuginfos, use: debuginfo-install docker-1.8.2-10.el7.x86_64", but in fact, No debuginfo packages available to install.

@Lokesh, is it enough testing for you? if so, I will close the bug as VERIFIED status.
Comment 14 Chris Evich 2015-12-02 11:42:24 EST
Anyone know if we have QE/CI Automation in place to test for this in docker builds?

If so, then I'll delete https://trello.com/c/R11qqosC :D
