Greetings sunners!

Genuine thanks to all managers answered to my posting! These brave people are:

Emy Parparita
David Harte <>
Toby Creek <>
Kevin Sheehan
Michael Sullivan

Particularly, I would like to express a special BIG THANKS to Rahul Roy
<> who sent me three comprehensive documents about
using the adb, tips of adb and Crash dump analysis. Complete URLs of these
documents are:

Other replies indicated that the best way to know deeply about debugging
and core analysis lies through the following book:

   "PANIC! UNIX System Crash Dump Analysis Handbook" by
   Chris Drake, SunSoft Press
   Kimberley A.D. Brown

Or inquire about it in the internet:

The book contains a lot of good information about crash dumps. It does
require that you have some C and assembly language background.

Toby Creek says:

  Sun also distributes a script called It's available on
  sunsolve. It will give you some preliminary output from a crash
  dump. I've never used it, so I don't know how useful it is.

Living in Russia it's just impossible to order that great book. So I was very
glad to scoop a good info from documents sent to me by Rahul Roy. Thanks again!

With kind regards,
Vitaly Beliaev
