How Dump Live Process Memory


Hi guys, thanks for reading. I've got this process that is leaking memory. I'd like to inspect it's memory (specifically heap). Unfortunately, it is very crucial and sending it a SIGSEGV is not a good option. Is there any way to get a dump of the process without killing it?

Thanks again.

Cool. Thanks for the info. Any ideas what would be the best way to inspect it? It happens to be a JVM so are there any Java aware tools for core dump inspection?
