Goal

In some rare cases, the application server crashes following a segmentation fault (operating system panic). This kind of crash will not leave any useful application level stack trace to troubleshoot the problem. The operating system can dump the state of the application memory with a trace of the operating system level instructions at the time of the crash. This is called a 'core dump'.

Out of the box, most Linux and UNIX system have this feature disabled. This note describes how to enable the core dump functionality.
