Simpler Navigation for Servers and Operating Systems
Completed: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We combined many of the older boards, so you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. Check the consolidated boards here as many sub-forums are now single boards.

Re: Enable

1) Use diskdump

2) Enable probe-luns:

# cd /opt/hp/hp_fibreutils/pbl
# ./pbl_inst.sh -i
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

Re: Enable

Ivan talked about crashdumps, i.e. when the entire machine crashes, the system can store some information that can be used to determine the cause of the crash.

Core dumps, on the other hand, happen when an individual process crashes, often because of a programming error. In Linux, the core dumps are disabled by default (the "coredumpsize" ulimit value is 0). To enable core dumps, just use the command "ulimit -c unlimited" before running the program that is desired to dump core on error. Normally any user can do this for his/her own processes: no root permissions required.
