Re: How to capture a PIM Dump

You can use the pim command from bch or pdcinfo or stm on CPUs from running OS.

Hope this helps!

Do you know of any links or documentation on how to do this? I'm not familiar with the process.

Re: How to capture a PIM Dump

If there's been a problem with the server, the PIM output will be in the /var/tombstones/ts99 file. Latest PIM output there.
