The Diagnostics Collector gathers the Java diagnostics files for a problem event and produces a compressed file containing all the diagnostic information, together with a detailed log.
The Java runtime produces multiple diagnostics files in response to events such as General Protection Faults, out of memory conditions or receiving unexpected operating system signals. The Diagnostics Collector runs just after the Java runtime produces diagnostics files. It searches for system dumps, Java dumps, heap dumps, Java trace dumps and the verbose GC log that match the time stamp for the problem event.
For further information about the Diagnostics Collector, see the corresponding topic in the Java Diagnostics Guide, V5.0.
