How to set the location of Java dump files for TM1Web



How to set the location of Java dump files for TM1Web. If the instance of Tomcat running TM1Web and TM1 Applications (pmpsvc) crashes the dmp, phd, and trc files will be generated in the ..\tm1_64\bin64 directory.

Resolving The Problem

C:\Program Files\IBM\Cognos\tm1_64\tomcat\bin\tomcat6w.exe //ES//pmpsvc
