Hi Everybody


I am new to the mailing list and working newly on the FreeBSD platform. I have 
some query regarding the kernel dump which i am trying to decode.

#0  doadump (di=0xc0baca40, live_dump=0) at 
#1  0xc0593b32 in boot (howto=260) at 
#2  0xc0593fe3 in panic (fmt=0xc0af61cc "%s: nhindex %u could not be 
allocated\n") at ../../../../../src/bsd/sys/kern/kern_shutdown.c:897

I need help in understanding what is function doadump? what role it plays in 
FreeBSD. And what do i interpret from the output above.

Any link which could help understand more on this and how decode kernel dumps 
should be useful.
