Reading "dmp" files in Linux??
#1
I know that when you have a Windows server , and suddenly crashes , a folder is created automatically called as "dumps" inside "orangebox" folder, containing "dmp" files relative to each crash.So, my question is , are there any such files in Linux Servers in order to study them , because sometimes my Linux server crashes and the folder "dumps" won't be created.So, where are these "crash explain" files located in Linux servers?

As far, as I know, you can open them with Visual Studio. I know no other way, but there must be... Posting just in case you have Visual Studio in your computer.

there is no visual studio on Linux...

on Linux usually the system dumps a "core" file (sometimes with the PID of the crashing process as extension). you can read that file with gdb, but usually normal users cannot make much use of it. only sometimes the backtrace command can give you some hint (it will list the function where it crashed with all calling functions). but be careful when jumping to conclusions from this. often the real problem is completely somewhere else!

Well, if the guy's server is on Linux, that doesn't mean he can't have a Windows machine at home. That's why I mentioned it. Smile

but the Linux version cannot be compiled with Visual Studio, so it will not produce files for use with Visual Studio... ;-)
