Getting Linux Crash Data

Hi all,

So my Garry’s Mod server is currently crashing on linux with no errors, it just stops responding.

Is there anyway I can find the dump files(if they were even created, none were found in the gmod directory) or anyway I can log a crash event?



You can run srcds with the -debug flag and it should create a core file. If it doesn’t and your distro is using systemd as its init check coredumpctl.

Also if your srcds is just hanging but never crashing you can hit ctrl+\ to send a SIGQUIT signal which will force a coredump.
