Re: core dump size in HP-UX

This should be the default. What does "ulimit -a" show?

I'm not sure what kernel parm sets this??
Mine seems set to coredump(blocks) 4194303, before I logon.

Shalom Hu,

This ulimit is normaly set in /etc/profile or more normally the user .profile script.

As far as your plan goes its a great way to fill up a filesystem. Be careful.

I see no evidence it is set there, for me but I'm limited.
