To enable core dump, you can either add ulimit -c unlimited in your profile because it only affect the current session. Or add the following lines in /etc/security/limits.conf -
*	soft	    core 	unlimited
*	hard    core	unlimited

Open in new window


Afterwards you can follow this article to generate a core.

A core dump is a on disk representation of a state of a user space application at the time of its abnormal termination. Core dumps can be used to diagnose the cause of a crash of an application. To generate core dump in RHEL 5 and 6 please refer the following KBase article :
"How can core dumps be enabled for daemons (services) in Red Hat Enterprise Linux?"

Tough to say without further information. If it is completely frozen you will need to go through the logs and verify hardware. I would suggest open another thread for this.
