    from man page:

    -e log

        Generate a syslog(3C) message when generation of a global core file is attempted.

    "The coreadm command is used to specify the name and location of core files produced by abnormally-terminating processes. See core(4).

    The first form shown in the synopsis can be executed only by the super-user and is used to configure system-wide core file options, including a global core file name pattern and a per-process core file name pattern for the init(1M) process. All such settings are saved in coreadm's configuration file /etc/coreadm.conf for setting on reboot."
