RP/TUX 6.4, 7.1, 8.0 - On HP platforms, dumpmem creates 0 byte files and corrupt file names >=24 bytes long

(Doc ID 768561.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo / Tuxedo / 6.4, 7.1, 8.0
Information in this document applies to any platform

Goal

Files generated by dumpmem command in tmadmin have file size equal to 0 when the application is started. The usage of
dumpmem on other boxes than  HP (with the same application, in this case simpapp) generated a non empty file. There is
a second problem on filename length. If it equals 24, the filename is corrupted add IPCS KEY	:<value of IPCKEY>,
if it is greater than 24, file isn't created.
