Check Point

Description

A core dump is created when a process crashes. Indeni will alert when a core dump file is created.

Remediation Steps

The list of core dumps is retrieved by logging into the shell over SSH and retrieving the details of files found in /var/log/dump/usermode/, /var/tmp/*core* or /var/crash. Investigate the core dump files. If the issue is not clear, open up a case with vendor support and send them the file.

How does this work?

The list of core dumps is retrieved by logging into the shell over SSH and retrieving the details of files found in /var/log/dump/usermode/, /var/tmp/*core* and /var/crash.

Why is this important?

The list of core dumps is retrieved by logging into the shell over SSH and retrieving the details of files found in /var/log/dump/usermode/, /var/tmp/*core* and /var/crash.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually look for core dumps, but depending on version and device they could be in different places.
