Rule Knowledgebase

Summary

A kernel panic was detected in the system log files. A kernel panic is an internal fatal error in which the system cannot easily recover.

Causes

Kernel panics can be caused by memory errors, hardware failures, or bugs in the operating system.

Resolutions

If a kernel panic occurs, the system will require a reboot. This is usually done automatically, but if not should be done manually. Root cause analysis should be performed by viewing associated event details in the system log files and by inspecting the system dump file if available.
