The very 1st step is to find the process you would like to dump.
The show process | incl < process name or pid > is one of many ways. In this example we will dump the sshd daemon that running for remote management access.
Next we need to find the location that our dumpfile to be stored at. The show exception cmd will display our possible collection areas.
1: the dump file is compress with unix compress
2: you can uncompress with gzip
3: due to the dumpsize could be large
Now to dump our sshd proce, we execute the dump command.
The log will show the dump and the path to the dump.
- compression is used for space saving
- compress can be disable by configuration in config mode ( exception compress off )
- if you dump a process you can perform this operation without interruption
- proc dumps helps cisco-tac with trouble-shooting specific process issues
