ERROR

Too many unsaved cores

coredump.findcore.partial

Severity

ERROR

Corrective Action

Run the "savecore" command to attempt to save the partial core, or run the "savecore -k" command to delete all unsaved cores.

Syslog Message

Partial core %s is missing %d of %d disks.

Parameters

corefile (STRING): Name of the kernel core file.
missing (INT): Number of disks that are missing.
total (INT): Total number of disks used in this dump.

Syslog Message

Cannot save partial core %s, missing %d of %d disks.

Parameters

corefile (STRING): Name of the kernel core file.
