Symptoms

We are seeing core files getting created under Ora_home/instances/instance1 on the Linuyx server.

Not sure what these core files are as the server is not crashing.

All BI services are up and running fine but these core files are getting created and taking up some 20-30 GB space and the Linux server is running out space.
