Kdump space requirements
I have a 2 CPU server, with 40G of ram. I have set up kdump to dump a vmcore to another system in the /cores filesystem.
My question is..
What is the minimum amount of space /cores must be to hold a vmcore dump from my 2 CPU system?
Is it 40GB, the amount of total ram of the system?
Or 80GB, 40Gx2, the total ram times each CPU?
