Goal

Customer is running Tuxedo 8.0 with RP #71 on Red Hat Linux 7.2 which is not supported anymore.
So they are going to upgrade with Tuxedo 8.1 (32 bit) on Red Hat Linux AS3.2

Problem description:
Customer is using Tuxedo service statistics to write into stderr file in large Production environment.
When stderr file reaches size of 2 GB it core dumps.

trace output (system calls):
write(2, " SERVICE PID SDATE "..., 75) = -1 EFBIG (File too large)
--- SIGXFSZ (File size limit exceeded) ---

This problem can be easily replicated :
Just create a file with size 2 GB and configure it as a stderr (or rename it to stderr ) and make service calls.
