A core dump file contains the contents of memory and NVRAM. Core dumps are written over reserved sections of any working disk owned by the local storage system.
Core dump files are not compatible between Data ONTAP releases because where the core starts on disks depends on the release. Because of this incompatibility, Data ONTAP might fail to find a core dump file dumped by another release.
|coredump.dump.attempts||Controls how many attempts are made to create a core dump file.||2|
