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.

This widget could not be displayed.

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.
