Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 598892
Can't tell "Panic" from "Complete Warn" and no panic backtrace log
Last modified: 2015-05-03 23:27:44 EDT
Please correct me if I choose wrong component
Description of problem:
When test causes a kernel panic, test will stop as "Complete Warn" and "External Watchdog Expired", there is no log/backtrace to indicate this is a kernel panic.
RHTS, on the other hand, will show you the result as "Aborted-Panic" or "Aborted-Fail" along with the full console log (with backtrace in it).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version - 0.5.40
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Schedule test /kernel/filesystems/btrfs/online-balance on RHEL6.0-Snapshot-4 (after snapshot 5 this bug is fixed)
Result is "Complete Fail" without backtrace log
Result is "Aborted-Panic" or "Aborted-Fail" with full console log
The same test in Beaker and RHTS
This is fixed now.
By default we do live monitoring for panics. So if a system panics it won't wait for the watchdog to expire.
