OBIEE 11g - Core Dumps Are Continuously Generated Under $INSTANCE_HOME (Doc ID 1999582.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 01, 2017

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.150120 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Two types of «core» files are generated on a regular basis under $ORACLE_INSTANCE (or $INSTANCE_HOME):

-- The first type is generated by the program «catalogcrawler» exactly each hour, always, when OBIEE is up.
-- The second type is generated by the program «sawserver» during a shutdown of OBI Presentation Services.

All those frequent crashes (13 per day) don't cause direct major functionality issues other than consuming space
