Description David E. Cross 2010-04-06 15:50:04 UTC
Processes which exit abnormally display a kernel message to this effect that includes some basic information about the process.  Its PID, its UID, its name.

On a machine with a lot of jails, this information can be essentially useless.

Consider a webhost with 50 jails serving PHP via fastcgi and one is crashing, its near impossible to track it down with just the information as currently provided.

Fix: Apply the included patch.

How-To-Repeat: Try to trace down a coredump on a machine with lots of jails

On FreeBSD 8./9.x it might actually be more usefull to print the jail
name as it's always there (and would be the jid by default if not set).

For FreeBSD 7.x the jail_name is optional so the jid might be the
better info.

Bjoern A. Zeeb         It will not break if you know what you are doing.
