I am very newbie on this and I tried with:
../repo/Linux/linux/scripts/faddr2line ./vmlinuz-4.14.32-1.el7.x86_64
0010:fsnotify+0x197/0x510

nm: ./vmlinuz-4.14.32-1.el7.x86_64: no symbols
no match for 0010:fsnotify+0x197/0x510

Obviously, I am doing something very wrong.

Very easily, I only need to wait 1-2 days for a crash to occur.

> Are you able to run debug kernels

Well, I was under the impression I do as I have:
grep -E 'DEBUG_KERNEL|DEBUG_INFO' /boot/config-4.14.32-1.el7.x86_64
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_REDUCED is not set
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_SPLIT is not set
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_DWARF4 is not set
CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL=y

Do you think that my kernel doesn't produce a proper crash dump?
I have a production cluster where I can run any kernel we need, so if I need
to compile again with different settings I can certainly do that.

I can't do that as the server isn't responsive and I can only power cycle it.

I can try the kernel-ml-4.16.2 from elrepo (we use CentOS 7).

Thanks a lot for your reply.
