Managing core dumps (cluster administrators only)

When a node panics, a core dump occurs and the system creates a core dump file that technical support can use to troubleshoot the problem. You can configure or display core dump attributes. You can also save, display, segment, upload, or delete a core dump file.

You can manage core dumps in the following ways:

Note: AFF A220, AFF A800, FAS2720, FAS2750, and later systems store core dumps on their boot device. When NetApp Volume Encryption (NVE) or NetApp Storage Encryption (NSE) is enabled on these systems, the core dump is also encrypted.
