Core file created with wrong pid number


Running SuSE 10.3 on IBM z10.
For some core file names we notice the number that should correspond to the PID is not correct. In /etc/sysctl.conf
kernel.core_pattern = /temp/core/core.%p.%t.%e

For example, running a test using the command
sleep 60 &
and then running kill -11 I get
core.32363.1322665189.ksh
where 32363 is the correct PID.

However, for a java process running under WebSphere I get
core.7863.1322663364.java
where 7863 is NOT the correct PID.

Any idea why?

Is it possible what you killed was a thread rather than a process and that the PID you're seeing is the PID of the first thread rather than the one you killed?
