Impact

Bigd crash, core file created. Note that the shutdown scenario was already under error conditions, so this is not a sign that something has broken or failed outside that condition that caused the shutdown.

Conditions

Anything that caused bigd to shutdown under abnormal conditions.

Workaround

None

Fix Information
