    Hello James,

    There are no specifics, but the general recommendations.

    Judging by the error codes you got 6/ABRT or 11/SEGV, you've got issues with memory addressing/management/allocation.

    Here are several examples of possible causes.

    - referring not existing pointer
    - out of memory when allocating
    - forgetting to free memory/release pointer after allocation

    Error messages in the files you provided reveals errors related to malloc function.

    malloc is a function of the standard library, stands for memory allocation.

    #2  0x00007f1f72676967 in __libc_message (action=action@entry=do_abort, fmt=fmt@entry=0x7f1f727a3b0d "%s\n") at ../sysdeps/posix/libc_fatal.c:181
    #3  0x00007f1f7267d9da in malloc_printerr (str=str@entry=0x7f1f727a5368 "malloc_consolidate(): invalid chunk size") at malloc.c:5342

    This function underlies all the upper level memory management operations.

    You should carefully reconsider what object instances you create/destroy in the constructor/destructor of the Device Agent.
