Pkgapp 3.5 Released!

Great news all.Photo © Lee Trujillo

I've fixed a few bugs, added some great enhancements and changed some of the output during run-time.  Please note, all downloads for Pkgapp (and DirTracer) will only be available via the My Oracle Support portal.  I hope to have all references to Pkgapp and DirTracer taken off the old BigAdmin and replaced with a reference to the support portal.

Using Pkgapp to gather libraries to debug core/gcore/crash files. [ID 1274584.1]

Changes in Pkgapp 3.5

Improvements:

  1. Created # GetLibs 1.0 for Pkgapp Linux. If available, uses gdb to gather the library files instead of requiring the -p <pid> to be used.
  2. Added functions getPermsRead and getPermsWrite to see if certain files like the /var/adm/messages etc files are readable.
  3. Changed post-run information displayed.
  4. Cleaned up the runtime usage output.
  5. Removed pargs usage on Solaris 8.
  6. Improved the library gathering when a corefile is used: Pkgapp Solaris.
  7. Added a fast check to see if the -a parameters value is a directory. Fail if it is.
  8. Improved the coreinfo.sh functionality for Oracle ODSEE Support.

Fixes:

  1. Fixed bug 6921433 - pkgapp 3.3 fails when name of application program exceeds 15 characters.
  2. Fixed bug 7024417 - pkgapp 3.4 Linux fails to find the binaries bit version if setgid/setuid is in the "file" output.

Cheers,

Lee
