Ooops is a proxy server.

http://zipper.paco.net/~igor/oops.eng/features.html

By default it installs in /usr/local and the log files are normally found here:

/usr/local/oops/logs/oops.log

As such oops errors are most likely to be received when trying to access something involving a webpage.

Of course there are loads of other uses for oops - I believe that there is an 'Object Orientated Prototyping system' which may also be what you are after.

Actually i am trying to implement netdump in linux. The man page of netdump-server is saying a line like
 "netdump-server is a server that listens on the network for connections from kernels using the netconsole/netdump module. When such a machine crashes it contacts the netdump-server on the specified ip/port. The server then proceeds to log console messages, including the oops message, and a kernel memory dump in a subdirectory of "/var/crash", and then reboots the machine."

So, what the "oops messages" it is representing ?

Under these circumstances, the server has a modified kernel that is designed to output information if something goes wrong. This can be any form of error that would normally produce a server 'crash', or can be configured for less drastic situations.

oops messages are the information from the kernel, and can consist of a stack trace (which tells the programmer where the error occurred) and also memory copies (so that the programmer can examine what the memory was doing at the time of the stack trace). Oops in this circumstance is 'oops' as in 'mistake'.
