getappcore - Get Application Core File


getappcore [OPTIONS] -j PID | /path/to/core/file


Creates an archive containing an application core, and all files required to analyze it - including the binary which created the core, and all required shared libraries. Included in the archive is a logfile containing RPM version information for further investigation by SUSE. You must specify the filename or the journal PID of the application core you want to submit. The core file must be provided uncompressed. The PID can be determined by the command "coredumpctl list". Since systemd creates compressed core files by default, you should almost always prefer '-j <PID>' nowadays. You can safely omit the '-b' option then.
