Help Interpreting System Log?

Post by Hayashimo » Fri Feb 09, 2018 1:21 pm

I've been experiencing semi-regular system hangups for the past week or two and have been trying to troubleshoot what's going on with little success.

I can't figure out how to get the kdump utility working, and the only thing that is shown consistently in logs upon crash is this mess of zeroes in the system log. Does anyone know what it might mean or have any tips for me to figure out what's going on?
