11.3 Service Dumps

A service dump is triggered when one of the following events occurs:

  1. A failure is detected in the Virgo code, or

  2. a thread deadlock is detected.

A service dump contains a snapshot of all the important state from the running Virgo instance. This snapshot is not intended for end user consumption but is useful for service personnel.

By default, service dumps are created in $SERVER_HOME/serviceability/dump.
