This look like a "core dump" ! The dump of the memory of a process
when it crashed.
This should help you to find why it crashed !
Can you look in your log files at the creation time of this "core
dump" to see for any error ?
Are you sure master.core is coming from a problem with cyrus ?
Because postfix "master" is also called master !
Could you remove this file and restart cyrus service ? Does this file
come back ?
If not can you try with postfix service ?
FYI : the ulimit command can't be used to "disable" the core dump
creation by setting a maximum size to 0
But this doesnt' solve the problem, just hide it.
