When a fatal error or crash occurs and is detected by any of the following applications, an error report is created about what was happening at the time of the problem:
The error report includes information such as the execution state of the threads at the time of the crash, so that iAnywhere Solutions is better able to diagnose the cause of the problem. By default, the error report is created in the diagnostic directory (specified by the SADIAGDIR environment variable), or if this location does not exist, it is created in the same directory as the database file.
Error report file names are composed as follows:
a prefix that identifies the application:
|SA||Personal or network database server|
a value indicating the software version
two fields linked with underscores that provide the timestamp for when the error report was created
the application identifier
the extension .mini_core
For example, SA12_20090620_133828_32116.mini_core is an error report from a SQL Anywhere version 12 database server from 2009/06/20, at 1:38:28 p.m., from process 32116.
During normal database server operation, diagnostic information is also recorded about the database server, such as how many CPUs are on the computer, whether hyperthreading is enabled, and what options were specified when the server was started. This information can also be submitted using dbsupport.
