Dependable Linux Efforts (DLE) Home Page


Linux has been used in enterprise field. However, to use mission critical area, Linux has to be more dependable. This is a project to rise dependability of Linux operating environment.


Kernel Enhancement

In this activity, we study kernel design and implementation to suit mission critical use. Since large scale servers are used in mission critical system, we also consider performance scalability. This activity currently focuses on memory management.


To discuss better implementation of Linux kernel, pragmatic work load is very important. So, we also develop benchmark tools.

Kdump for IA64

We are developing Kdump for IA-64 and have developed its basic parts. So we release the first version.
It consists of document adn three patches: kexec-tools patch, kernel patch for 2.6.13-rc2-mm2 and crash patch.
