I'm trying to set up a virtual machine for Linux kernel development.
One thing that I'd like to do is to use something equivalent to the NMI
watchdog feature to trigger a crash dump when the (guest) kernel suffers
a hard lockup.
However, the NMI watchdog seems to be non-functional on a Linux guest.
Is there a way to enable them?
Alternatively, is there another way I can trigger a panic or crash dump
on a Linux guest when it has disabled interrupts?
Thanks in advance,
