/proc/kcore file is large
Symptoms
  • /proc/kcore file is large
Cause

The /proc/kcore file is only a virtual file. It contains the RAM that the kernel can allocate.

Note: On 64-bit systems, /proc/kcore can allocate up to 128TB because that is the absolute limit for 64-bit systems.


Solution

No solution required - expected behavior.

This file does not use actual disk space and only exists virtually.

This solution has been verified for the specific scenario, described by the combination of Product, Version and Symptoms. It may not work in other scenarios.
