Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1477233
Huge coredumps os atomic-openshift-api.service when it restarts
Last modified: 2017-09-15 15:36:30 EDT
Description of problem:
When the api service gets in a bad state (not normally stopped) and restarts it writes a huge core.<#####> file in /var/lib/origin/
This is especially problematic on starter-us-east-1 because the core file takes up more than 11GB of the 16GB of the filesystem
Moving said core file out of the dir kills the process again, generating another huge core file
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
features: Basic-Auth GSSAPI Kerberos SPNEGO
get the atomic-openshift-api.service in a bad state
Steps to Reproduce:
Similar to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1277329
What is the output of "ulimit -c"?
If "unlimited" try adding the following line to /etc/security/limits.conf:
* hard core 0
Setting coredump file size limits would really need to be addressed at the installer level.
Need confirmation from the reporter that setting the coredump file size limits resolves the issue.
