# Debug Builds¶

A debugger can set breakpoints in a plugin. Use a Traffic Server debug build and compile the plugin with the -g option. A debugger can also be used to analyze a core dump. To generate core, set the size limit of the core files in the records.config file to -1 as follows:

CONFIG :ts:cv:proxy.config.core_limit INT -1


This is the equivalent of setting ulimit -c unlimited
