DMP files fill up the server

Windows 2008 R2 server


The free hard disk space on the Cognos BI report server is low.

The Cognos folder under c:\program files\   take more than 50 GB space.


When a BIBUS or REPORT crashes a dmp file is created in the bin folder.

They fill up the disc, and you should periodical erase these *.DMP files.


Change the cclWinSEHConfig.xml file in folder C:\Program Files\ibm\cognos\c10_64\configuration

Change value below from

<env_var name=”CCL_HWE_ABORT” value=”2:2″/>


<env_var name=”CCL_HWE_ABORT” value=”0:0″/>

Save the file.

Restart all the Cognos BI services in correct order.
