This article explains how to use IBM® AIX® reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) infrastructure services to enable trace capability for kernel extension and device drivers. Mainly, the AIX infrastructure manages core error logging, component tracing, and dump facilities for kernel extension and device drivers. It provides the interface to register and control the level of tracing facilities for kernel extension and driver components. It also exemplifies the concepts through an example implementation and best practices to be followed to interface with the RAS infrastructure.
