Pulse dump files timestamps

dump

#1

Hi,

I was asked to analyse a TM1 Server crash in Prod on 2018-12-24. I looked at the .dump files in pulse and I found a dump file from that day: instanceName_20181224050421476.dump

The timestamp doesn’t quite match to the information I recieved about the timing of the Server crash (few hours difference).

Can I trust pulse? Can I trust that pulse created this .dump file right after a server crash happened (with a tolerance of a few seconds / minutes)?

It the few hours difference the exact difference between GMT time and local time?


#3

No. Probably people just werent really precise about when it actually happened.
But can we assume that the dump happens right after the crash ?


#4

Yes.In my experience dump file creation is immediate and should be created the same time as the notification is sent.
