Parameter: corepath

Startup parameters change the behavior of the Service Manager server. You can always set a startup parameter from the server's operating system command prompt.




This parameter defines the path to the core file that is generated by a system crash. The operating system of the Service Manager server determines which core file is generated, if any, during a system crash. Core file names are specific to the operating system.

For example:

Linux: Core.<process_id>

Windows: sm.<process_id>_<thread_id>.mini.dmp


  • In Linux, this parameter is available only when the GCORE command is available.
  • You must set the value of this parameter to a location that already exists. Service Manager will not create the directory structure in which to write the core file.
