Hello, everyone. Today, we will be discussing how to capture Thread dumps of a JVM on a Unix server. So once we have logged into the server, we’ll be running the command to look for the process ID of the Java processes. For example, in my case, you can see that the process ID of a particular Java process is 5496. So I’ll go ahead and run the kill hyphen three command followed by the PID of the process to generate the thread dumps of that particular Java process. Once the kill command has been executed, we can find the thread dumps file in the application server path on the Unix environment.

So, in this way, we’ll be able to successfully capture thread dumps of a JVM on a Unix server. Thank you. -
