Hi Experts,

We need to monitor or get memory dump for particular process  we are taking memory dump each time using process id (adplus -hang -p <process id> -o)  but we need to run this frequently to collect continus memory dump for one applicaiton web processes. We are not able to schedule it to run using process is for every 30mints, since process is keep on changing. Is there any way to
1. take memory dump using process name.
2. can we assign one particular process id for one particular job permanently
3. Is there any way to get process memory dump for every 30 mints.

Please help

Sorry I was offline for days because I was sick. Yes Memory will also work. Have a look:


Memory commit threshold in MB at which to create a dump of the process.


Write a dump file with all process memory. The default dump format includes thread and handle information.


Write a dump file with thread and handle information, and all read/write process memory. To minimize dump size, memory areas larger than 512MB are searched for, and if found, the largest area is excluded. A memory area is the collection of same-sized memory allocation areas. The removal of this (cache) memory reduces Exchange and SQL Server dumps by over 90%.

For Memory Troubleshooting we use also Process Monitor.
