system node coredump status

Display kernel coredump status

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The system node coredump status command displays status information about core dumps. The command output depends on the parameters specified with the command. If a core dump is in the process of being saved into a core file, the command also displays its name, the total number of blocks that are to be saved, and the current number of blocks that are already saved.

You can specify additional parameters to display only information that matches those parameters. For example, to display coredump status information about the local node, run the command with the parameter -node local.
