You asked what is the command to check "Check for existence of crash/coredump files in /var/crash/"hostname" directory"?

If the hostname of your system is abcde, then the command to list the files in the directory /var/crash/abcde in long format is indeed:
ls -l /var/crash/abcde

which will produce the same output as the command:
ls -l /var/crash/"abcde"

If these commands just report:
total 0

then there are no files present in that directory.
