Dave, I had a chance to get a core-dump of a hung LDM process on Virga this morning. Unfortunately, the operating-system wouldn't let a corefile be created. So I restarted the LDM and modified Virga to allow coredumps. The changes were 1) adding the entry "COREDUMPS=-YES-" to the file "/etc/hostconfig"; 2) enabling write permission to the directory "/cores" by "other"; and 3) changing "limit coredumpsize 0" in file ~ldm/.cshrc to "limit coredumpsize unlimited". Interestingly, sending the hung downstream LDM process a SIGQUIT didn't cause it to terminate (as it should have). Instead, I had to send it a SIGABRT. Now we have to wait, again, for a downstream LDM to hang. Regards, Steve Emmerson Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: TXN-293177 Department: Support LDM Priority: Normal Status: Open
