HOW TO: Collect core file executable and pertinent libraries
The script takes, as its argument, the path to the executable or core file, and creates a zipped bundle containing the core file executable and all of the required libraries to open the core file on another machine.


./ <path to executable> <path to core>


The output file name will vary based on the platform as follows:

  • Linux & MAC      coreName_libs_all.tar.gz
  • HP-UX & Solaris  coreName_libs_all.tar.Z
  • AIX                   snapcore_xxxxx.pax.Z


  • If file is created by the Integration Service process, the following would be the sample command:
    ./ $INFA_HOME/server/bin/pmserver $INFA_HOME/server/bin/<corefile_name>
  • If file is created by the session process, the following would be the sample command:
    ./ $INFA_HOME/server/bin/pmdtm $INFA_HOME/server/bin/<corefile_name>
  • If the core file is created during IDQ mapping execution and if the job is run by pmdtmsvc2 process, the following would be the sample command:
    ./ $INFA_HOME/services/shared/bin/pmdtmsvc2 $INFA_HOME/tomcat/bin/<corefile_name>
  • If the core file is created due to (java based) service crash, such as DIS or MRS service crash, the following would be the sample command:​​​
    ./ $INFA_HOME/java/jre/bin/java  $INFA_HOME/tomcat/bin/<corefile_name>​​

If core name is core.12345 then, the output will be core.12345_libs_all.tar.gz or core.12345_libs_all.tar.Z

On AIX a file named snapcore_xxxxx.pax.Z is created.

On all the other platforms it will create a file named coreName_libs_all.tar.gz or coreName_libs_all.tar.Z


In Informatica version 9.5.1 and above, libscollector is shipped along with the product.

It can be found under <INFA_HOME>/tools/debugtools/infaCoreFileDepPackager/. ​​
