    Unanswered: too many core.xxx files generated by grid control agent

    Hi all,

    I have a server with Red Hat EL running an oracle database 10g R2 and an Oracle Agent.
    The disk ran out of space and I realized that there are a lot of files stating with core.xxx such as :

    -rw------- 1 gridagent oinstall 17M Aug 2 13:10 core.10348
    -rw------- 1 gridagent oinstall 17M Aug 2 13:15 core.10827
    -rw------- 1 gridagent oinstall 17M Aug 2 12:30 core.4129
    -rw------- 1 gridagent oinstall 17M Aug 2 12:35 core.4772

    What's that ?
    Why are those files generated at $AGENT_HOME/<HOST>_<SID>/sysman/log/ ?

    in nmc.log I can see lines such as:
    NMC-00000 2010-08-02 13:25:39 [11760, nmcdbg.c,0440]TRC: Debug context enabled.
    NMC-20020 2010-07-30 01:31:58 [23083, nmccole.c,0725]ERR: Could not collect using DSGA Collection method
    NMC-20014 2010-07-29 01:31:56 [11258, nmccole.c,0822]ERR: Could not attach to the SGA


    Thanks in advance

    I suggest you submit a Service Request to MOS

    Actually, the OS is CentOS not Red Hat, even though there are basically the same :-)

    unsupported OS makes it hard to get support from Oracle

    You can get Oracle Linux for free. It is almost a clone of Red hat enterprise but is optimized for an oracle database.

    Hi beilstwh,

    thanks for the answer.
    I checked and it happens with two servers, one with CentOS and other with red hat (which is certified).

    Servers is monitoring 4 instances, but the problem is with only one instance:

    /u00/app/oracle/OracleHomes/agent10g/lugano.xxxxx.ar_CAPA/sysman/log <- 20 GB
    the rest are only 12 KB

    /u00/app/oracle/OracleHomes/agent10g/lugano.xxxxx.ar_AUDI/sysman/log is only 4 KB

    any idea ?
