gcore(1) User Commands gcore(1)
gcore - get core images of running processes
gcore [-pgF] [-o filename] [-c content] process-id...
The gcore utility creates a core image of each specified process. By
default, the name of the core image file for the process whose process
ID is process-id will be core.process-id.
The following options are supported:
-c content Produces core image files with the specified content.
The content description uses the same tokens as in
coreadm(1M). The -c option does not apply to cores pro-
duced due to the -p or -g flags.
-F Force. Grabs the target process even if another
process has control.
-g Produces core image files in the global core file
repository with the global content as configured by
coreadm(1M). The command will fail if the user does not
have permissions to the global core file repository.
-o filename Substitutes filename in place of core as the first part
of the name of the core image files. filename can con-
tain the same tokens to be expanded as the paths in
-p Produces a core image file in the process-specific
location with the process-specific content for each
process as configured by coreadm(1M). The command will
fail if the user does not have permissions to the per-
process core file repository.
The following operand is supported:
process-id process ID
The following exit values are returned:
0 On success.
non-zero On failure, such as non-existent process ID.
core.process-id core images
