How to view memory contents

I plan to run an application server in red hat EL core 4 system. For a security reason, I need to view the contents of system memory. Is there a way to export the contents of memory to a file so that I can process the file later? thanks.

Thanks Ruudra. It helps.

But when I use the command "dd if=/dev/mem bs=1M count=256|hexdump -C > ramfile" (run as root), system only returns the first 1M contents. But I need to browse all physical memory contents. (My purpose is to examine a particular process's memory contents. If this is not straight forward, I do not mind examining the whole memory.)

Any comments are appreciated.
