Hello Community, hope your are doing well !
I am looking which files could be erased on my CAS Web because it is startng to miss disk space.
I have found a few files with .MDMP extension (5 exactly) in the /VAS/jre/bin directory of my CAS WEB ... very old, dated from 2014, and for a total disk space of 65Go !!!!!!!!!!!!
I asked GOOGLE but nothing very clear about that kind of file.
It sounds like something dealing with MemoryDuMP ... isn't it ?
Please let me know, dear Community, because, if i am right, i have found a good solution to retrieve disk space ... :=).
Thanks in advance

You are right, .MDMP files are memory dumps created by Java when the server crashes or restarts. I can't tell you if you are ok to delete them or not...
Gail Shaw says that if these files are old and the problem hasn't been a recurring one, then you can safely delete them.
More importantly I think disabling them in the future is something you should look at.
If you'd like to generate a log file from those mdmp files, maybe this will help:
Ps. The general consensus I saw by asking google was that these files are huge and people want to delete them... So I don't think you are alone in this situation.
