    Suddenly on one server we've got a lot (around 2.5gig) of core dump files. Here is the output of gdb:

    (gdb) core core.998
    Core was generated by `tailwatchd '.
    Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
    #0 0x00000000004784a3 in ?? ()


    Can anyone tell anything about it or is there any way to get more information about these cores?

    Anton.

    I too am seeing a lot of these. I would also be interested in knowing what is causing this.

    The servers that I am noticing this on are also x86_64. That might be a common thread.

    I must say, that I did upcp --force and haven't seen any more core dumps on that server. Also I can report just one server with such issue. One from about 30-40 machines, running more or less similar hardware and software.
