Inspecting An Application Crash

Check your core file configuration:

# coreadm

This should print something like:

     global core file pattern: 
     global core file content: default
       init core file pattern: core
       init core file content: default
            global core dumps: disabled
       per-process core dumps: enabled
      global setid core dumps: disabled
 per-process setid core dumps: disabled
     global core dump logging: disabled

If the global core file pattern is empty and per-process core dumps are enabled, an application crash will save a core file named core in the working directory. To print the stack information from the crash:

pstack core
