# ln -s /dev/null /etc/sysctl.d/coredump.conf # /lib/systemd/systemd-sysctl
but it didn't work; /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern still contains "systemd-coredump ...". Furthermore, the processes that I have dumping core do so when using a lot (many GB) of memory, so the core dumps are huge. This causes systemd-journald to eat up 100% CPU for a long time after core dumps.
Also, how do I delete the ones that are already saved (that show up in systemd-coredumpctl)?

This didn't work for me either, so i changed the link to:
# ln -s /dev/null /etc/sysctl.d/50-coredump.conf
After that /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern shows "core" only.
Hope that helps.
Edit: I used the naming convention from /lib/sysctl.d/ which is also "50-coredump.conf".

@steinchen: I can confirm that this works for me, too. What a relief, thanks!
Thanks! Marking as SOLVED.
Hi, in case this isn’t working anymore (as some people say), you may refer to the updated instructions on the wiki to restore normal core dump files that work for me!
