How To Enable Full Core Dumps on IBM AIX Platforms. (Doc ID 1273320.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 01, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 8.1.7 to 11.2]
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)


This article explains the enabling of full CORE tracing on the AIX platform. If this is not enabled, we do not get complete core dumps from RDBMS exception error dumps, such as ORA-00600 or ORA-07445 exceptions.

Should the regular exception trace dumps be insufficient, Oracle Support would need to look at the associated full core dumps.
