NAME

       tapset::panic - systemtap panic tapset

DESCRIPTION

        Functions in the panic tapset allow a probe handler to invoke
        the system panic routine with a user-specified message.

        This may be used with a crash dump collection facility such as
        kexec/kdump in order to capture data for post-mortem debugging.

        Due to the fact that this will bring the system to an immediate
        halt the functions in this tapset require guru mode.

       panic  trigger a panic

              See function::panic(3stap)
               for details.
