Re: [amar avula] dump files - HDMP File extension related to perl
[In reply to]
There is no scripts that are present in this server other than active perl installed scripts.What does that mean? Are you saying that the only scripts on the server are the core Perl modules i.e., .pm files?
Activeperl does not arbitrarily execute perl scripts on its own.
How can i get the information of which script is generating the perl.exe dump file every 15 mins??If it's that consistent, then it's probably being launched via a scheduled task.
Have you checked Scheduled Tasks, or Task Manager, or Event Viewer?
Is this a web server? If so, have you checked the cgi scripts?
As I mentioned in my first post, 5.6.1 is old and buggy. The buggy portions of the perl.exe binary are probably the real cause of the dump files. Upgrading to a new version will certainly fix some (or most) of the problems. However, you should read the release notes to learn about the changes that have been made.
Since 5.6.x, 5.8.x, and 5.10.x are not binary compatible with each other, upgrading in this case really means preforming a clean install of perl.
