Patch level detected:Dollar Universe 6.0.00
Product Version: Dollar.Universe 6

Description :After IO crash, no core was created, whereas core creation is allowed on the system.
Environment:
OS: All Linux/Unix
OS Version: any
Cause:
Cause type:
Configuration
Root Cause: IO was launched with a user with ulimit -c value set to "0" preventing Dollar Universe to create a core file in case of a crash.
Resolution:
Be sure to have set a value for ulimit -c / ulimit -Hc  not equal to 0 so that applications can create a core dump in case they crash.

You can set this to "unlimited" to be sure core dump will be complete.

Modify the value in ulimit -c and ulimit -Hc setting core file size with the value 'unlimited'

In case the system is AIX, fullcore generation should also be enabled, in order to do so, consult the following IBM documentation:
