Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1291856
When aborting due to large distribution, Erlang does not produce a crash dump
Last modified: 2016-06-08 08:09:56 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1291822 +++
Erlang aborts in dist_port_command with ERTS_ABORT_EXIT:
if (size > (Uint) INT_MAX)
"Absurdly large distribution output data buffer "
"(%beu bytes) passed.\n",
However, ERTS_ABORT_EXIT inhibits erlang crash dump generation. It would be better to exit with ERTS_DUMP_EXIT so a crash dump is generated, in order to help debug crashes from large messages.
Verified in Juno 2016-05-04 with erlang-R16B-03.7min.3.el7ost.x86_64, using the explosivo.sh script from bug #1291822.
