When troubleshooting the tmm state when mcpd exits, it is not possible to generate a tmm core


Unable to force a tmm core when mcpd exits. There is no functional impact to this but it can make diagnosing issues more difficult.


Troubleshooting mcpd and tmm state at the same time



Fix Information

A new sys db variable has been added called tmm.mcp.disconnect.core to cause tmm to core when mcpd disconnects.

Behavior Change

A new sys db variable has been added called tmm.mcp.disconnect.core. The default value is disabled. When enabled, tmm will core if mcpd exists. This can be useful for troubleshooting purposes.
