continous decrease in disk space
- hi all,
I am facing a strange problem. I am running our app on 100 threads
(RHL7.1). I got core dumped after around 2 hrs. After scrutinising
the things i found the available disk space is getting lesser and
lesser( df -h ). When available free disk space reduces to around 20
MB the program gives core dumps.
The free disk space reduces around 4-5MB per min. the core size
generated is of 2.0 GB. when i delete the core the free disk space is
only 10 MB.
Our application has no mem leaks as tested with comm. tools like
insure++, rational purify etc.. the top command shows mem increase
(the RSS ) from 18MB to 23 MB after 2 hrs when the prog gives core
My point is where can be the problem?? Also i want to understand the
relationship betn core generated and reduction of free disk space.
Any help or pointer to the study material is highly appreciated.
