What are the hs_err_pid files in my WASP directory?

In the use case, the user's hard drive was slowly filling up with these files.



This is general information applicable to most versions of UIM.



These files are created by JAVA when Apache Tomcat container runs into fatal issues.

"When a fatal error occurs, an error log is created with information and the state obtained at the time of the fatal error."
