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
/var/crash.
We need to reduce the storage which dump data occupy.
I think that diskdump should save compressed dump data
and operate it.

Akira
