How to force core dump using kill command.

Re: kill

open a shell and do the following:

# ulimit -c 10000000
# bash <-- this is a sample, start your process
# ps -ef <-- find your pid
# kill -s 4 pid

enjoy your core dump. Also if your process is set to handle SIGILL then you may not get a dump.

Good luck.
