Dictionary of Debugging: Kernel Space

Kernel Space

The linear range of memory addresses, a sub-interval of a memory space, comprising from code and data of an operating system computational process or its kernel part. For example, for a memory space [0, M] the kernel space can have the range of [N, M] addresses, where 0 < N < M, as illustrated on the following diagram valid for most of contemporary operating systems:

The memory contents might not be available for specific memory regions of a kernel space.
