RE: PeopleSoft DBA Forum core files getting generated in appserv directory
- Hi there,
I have seen this on almost every Unix server I have ever run PSoft on. For
some reason, bringing the servers down, even cleanly, creates a core dump.
You just have to clean up after them. I think the only time it would be an
issue is if you were tight on disk space in the directories for your
applications - if that happens if can bring your apps down hard when they
run out of space.
hope this helps

We too get core dumps on a regular basis when we shut down our system
overnight for backups.
I wrote a ksh script to keep a check on them every 10 minutes and I've
attached a file showing the results.
We cleared up most of them by configuring paths etc. correctly and the
remainder don't seem to cause a problem.
Let me know if you want a copy of the script.

We are running one instance of CRM 8.8 and one instance of FSCM 8.4 SP1 both
on PeopleTools 8.43.We have noticed that core files keep getting generated
in the respective <PS_HOME>/appserv/<DOMAIN> directories. Any idea why these
core files get generated? Does this affect the performance? Can I delete
these files without affecting the appserver domain?
