Will java core dump files be automatically generated by WebSphere or does they have to be generated manually?
Because, when i asked my Admin for core dump files, he said "The only javacore dumps I see on these servers are on v205 and dated a month back:"
 
-rw-r--r--   1 wsadmin  wsadm       1196396 Mar 13 15:44 javacore1269914.1236973438.txt
-rw-r--r--   1 wsadmin  wsadm       1196435 Mar 13 15:44 javacore1269914.1236973491.txt

Can't he generate them now?

Java core files will be generated under certain circumstances:

For example:
- Out of Memory condition
- Null Pointer Exception

You can also cause a Java core by "sending" an appropriate signal to the JVM.

For example:

Thanks for solution. Two questions:
1) kill -3 [PID]. Where PID is the process id of portal server. Will it kill the portal server?
2) ./dbxtrace_aix.sh -a [PID] > dbxtrace.out.   What does this do?

The "kill" command isn't well named.  It is really just sending a signal, which in the case of "-3" is a request to the JVM to create a javacore file, and continue executing.

So, no, it won't "kill" your Portal Server

Thanks for the  grade & points.

Good luck & have a great day
