This document contains Q&A and presentation and video download links from the recently hosted webinar by IBM Spectrum Protect support team to discuss 'IBM Spectrum Protect server crash/core dump analysis'.
Q1: Is there any limit for core dump file size?
>>There is no specific size of core dump file, however you can limit the size of core dump file by setting the following parameter value.
core file size <value> (For Linux)
coredump(blocks) <value> (For AIX)
Run "ulimit -a" command to verify the current setting. It is an operating system setting so seek help from operating system administrator to update those values.
>>It is not possible to extract call stack from a corrupted core dump file. A further investigation is required for the cause of corruption, most probably from relevant operating systems administration and support.
