Debugging by printing
The feedback you provide will help us show you more relevant content in the future. I hope this has answered your question. Also, this web page indicates that it’s a ring buffer, so “tail -f” and friends might not kmag so well anyway use “dmesg” instead although that won’t monitor like “tail -f” can: They stay buffered there until the console code has a chance to initialize the console ksmg often the serial port for embedded devices.
The other drawback is that printing usually consumes quite some processing power and io time, so if you’re trying to debug a timing critical section or a timing bug, you’re probably out of luck.
printk.kmsg: Ratelimit it by default
Have a look at How linuxx read ring buffer within linux kernel space? The major drawback is that printk is quite static, so you have to figure out what you want to trace beforehand and if you want to trace something different you have to recompile your code – which can become quite cumbersome.
Printk can be called while holding a lock, from interrupt and process context, is SMP safe and does not need any special preparation.
I want to understand the difference and relation between them? It is important to note that the Kernal is the core of the Linux or Unix operating system which is first loaded during the operating system boot process.
If the kernel code is loaded early in the boot process, one might not even get any kernel message before the device hangs… Fortunately, these are common challenges developers encounter, and there are already lmsg good solutions for them.
linjx Currently, there is a possibility to use the USB serial ports too. This page was last edited on 6 Augustat What is difference between iterface and abstract?

Is kmsg not a circular buffer? Change the name also URL address, possibly the lniux of the page. This is the only such message in my kernel log dmesg at the moment. See Sarah Sharp’s blog entry about using netconsole http: Knowing what’s there can be very useful in debugging your console.
