Using Shared Memory Dumps

You can configure SAP ASE to dump shared memory to files when specific conditions occur (for example, segmentation faults).

The shared memory dump file provides a snapshot of the server at the time the specified condition occurred, eliminating the difficulty of using a debugger or specialized instrumented code to trap an error at the moment it occurs. Technical support engineers can use this dump file to diagnose the cause of the shared memory dump, and determine how to configure Adaptiver Server to avoid the problem in the future.
