Core Dump Missing

Missing Core Dump:
- First, check your core-dump limit by running:
- If the output value is zero (0), programs will not be able to create a core dump.
- To remedy the situation, you need the limit to be above zero.
- You can make the limit as large as possible by running:
ulimit -c unlimited
- Caveats: A new limit only applies to processes started by the current shell. To change it for all processes, put the command in your .profile or .bashrc file.
