Atkins can be used to examine variables, tables, and linked lists in the running kernel. Subcommands can be entered to show formatted kernel administration of processes, open files, incore inodes, page cache buffers, sockets, etc. Memory dumps can be shown using virtual or physical addresses, or using addresses within user space of a particular process. Furthermore stack backtraces can be printed e.g. to determine the reason why a particular process is currently in a wait- state. Note that atkins requires a certain level of knowledge about the Linux kernel.
