This is bug of the Solaris Agent : An issue has been solved where the Solaris Agent threw core dumps occasionally during File transfer.
This bug is fixed in the following releases:
Hotfix: 12.3.9 HF1 of the Solaris Agent - available.
Service Pack : 21.0.4 - pending.
A workaround is possible: consisting in activating a trace mode on this agent. This brings the agent in a stable status, the problem however is the danger of causing a file system full issue, because of the huge amount data that this mode introduces.
For example with these flags set on the agent process was running file:
- tcp/ip=4 ,- ft_debug=3 ,- memory=1
