I just commited the "core filename format" and per-process sysctl variables
changes I proposed. see sysctl(3), sysctl(8) and core(5) for details.
- it's now possible to specify a different name/path for process
core dumps through the kern.defcorename sysctl variable. default is
"%n.core" and can be changed with 'options DEFCORENAME'.
- resources limits can be viewed and changed on a per process basis
using the proc sysctl hierarchy.
Those of you who were using the SHORTCORENAME kernel config option
should now put:
in their config file
Those of you who were using the kern.shortcorename sysctl options should now
sysctl -w kern.defcorename=core
If you update you /etc/rc and /etc/rc.conf you can set
