Parameter: enablecoredump

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 enables Service Manager to log information generated by a system crash. The operating system of the Service Manager server determines what core file gets 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

When you see system messages in the sm.log file that indicate the Core Generation is disabled and ignoring Generate Core dump requests, start the processes to log information by enabling the parameter with a setting of "1" (enablecoredump:1).

Note By default, the file is generated in Service Manager's RUN directory. You can choose an alternate location by providing the corepath parameter.
