I am now faced with trying to debug some odd crashes for a commercial application, the dreaded SAS, and I am looking for some clues that might help to diagnose the issue.
Of course I check the SAS runtime logs, and I also check /var/log/messages. Nothing in /var/log/messages, but the SAS runtime log seems to indicate a memory or disk space issue:
ERROR: Insufficient space in file WORK.'#tf0533'n.UTILITY. ERROR: Insufficient space in file WORK.20110609_BCH.DATA.
There is surely enough disk space, so I am lead to believe it might be a memory issue. What other system logs or even tools can I use for looking for further information (such as writing to a full disk device, spikes in memory usage, swapfs errors, etc.)?
