Why, exactly? Fedora gives no such guarntees (heck, I'm stuck with an unupgradable F16).

If a host fills up with dumps so quickly, it's a sign that it should not be used for production, and that someone should look into the cores.

Note that we've just swapped hats: you're arguing for letting a local admin log in and mess with system configuration, and I'm for keeping a centralized feature for storing and collecting core dumps. > If we want to automatically enable dumps I guess it should go to > /var/lib/core or similar. _______________________________________________ vdsm-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.fedorahosted.org/mailman/listinfo/vdsm-devel
