That's really outside the scope of libvirt. On Fedora/RHEL there is the abrt program, which captures core dumps from any process in the entire OS and has configurable actions for where to save them. IIUC Ubuntu has some general purpose core dump handler too but I don't know much about it myself. They all work by hooking into the kernel's core_pattern sysctl knob to redirect core dumps to their own binary instead of using $CWD Regards, Daniel -- |: http://berrange.com -o- http://www.flickr.com/photos/dberrange/ :| |: http://libvirt.org -o- http://virt-manager.org :| |: http://autobuild.org -o- http://search.cpan.org/~danberr/ :| |: http://entangle-photo.org -o- http://live.gnome.org/gtk-vnc :| __________________________________________________________________________ OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Unsubscribe: openstack-dev-requ...@lists.openstack.org?subject:unsubscribe http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
