How to generate Thread Dump and Heap Dump for JIRA using shell scipt

I need to write shell script which should generate Thread dump & Heap dump pragmatically using Shell script.

These needs to be take with time span of 10 millisecond and in number of 5.

 I know i need to capture JIRA PID and then create Directory where these files will be dumped.


Any help will be aprreciated.

You can use the kill -3 command:

kill -3 <PID>

Run it in a loop for 5 times with 10sec wait each time.

This command will write the thread dumps to the catalina.out file,

Copy the relevant lines from that file to the designated file.
