    I think those core dumps get created when a web app crashes. It is my understanding that they are safe to delete and that there is no single cause. If you find it is happening frequently, you'll need to identify what script on the website is causing the crash.

    Yes, treating the symptoms of a problem ultimately doesn't solve the problem your server is experiencing.

    A fatal error in a program automatically triggers a core dump, and by extension the phrase "to dump core" has come to mean, in many cases, any fatal error. A core dump is often a useful tool for a programmer seeking to isolate and identify an error in an application/service/script. You can delete these files if you want. But you need to fix the script/application that triggers core dump.

    is there any way to find out or search the trouble script of the apllication
    since i don't know anything about scripting and it happened on my client home
    directory

    # file core.3417
    core.3417: ELF 32-bit LSB core file Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), SVR4-style

    that was the info if i used the file command for the core file
