Yes u can delete the files from the cdump directory. But these core dumps
should be valuable to Oracle support.

So it depends on your decission. If they take to much space you can delete
the older ones.

You can use rm -fr [directory name]

Be careful, irrespective of your decision to keep the files or not, the
directory needs to exist.

use rm -rf <directory_name>/* instead.
