Core Dump files


We are facing problem with teh creation of very large(2GB) dump files in the filesystem


their names are like this - core.20081219.124321.1736826.0013.dmp

I delete them everyday, but I need a permanent solution, so that they are not created.

Kindly help.

    Set the DISABLE_JAVADUMP and IBM_NOSIGHANDLER environment variable by running the following commands from the command line as <sid>adm user or adding the following commands to the <sid>adm user environment (These are csh commands):

    setenv DISABLE_JAVADUMP true

    setenv IBM_NOSIGHANDLER true

    Please chech the Note 852918 - Setting up the operating system to get a full system core

    Hope help you

      Goto <sid>adm Home directory (/home/<sid>adm) , include the environment varilables in the .sapenv_<hostname>.sh and .csh files.

      Log off the system and log backup on to activate the new environment.

      Hope help you...

      Thanks & regards,
