Description Akira Imamura 2005-10-18 12:02:37 EDT
The enterprise system currently has a large amount of memory
especially on high-end platforms. So dump data that diskdump
collect consumes very large storage for dump device and
We need to reduce the storage which dump data occupy.
I think that diskdump should save compressed dump data
and operate it.

I've just posted the patch to rhkernel-list.
