HOWTO : Create a TimesTen core dump that just has stack trace, it excludes the shared memory segment (the database) (Doc ID 1668554.1)

Last updated on MARCH 23, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database - Version 11.2.1 and later
Linux x86-64
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)

Goal

 The goal is to create a core dump from a process connected to a TimesTen datastore, which excludes the TimesTen shared memory segment from the core but from which a sane stack trace can be taken. The reason for this is that the memory segment, particularly on Exalytics machines, can be huge, and so make a core dump unviable to capture because of the server resources (disk, I/O) it consumes.
