Have known about using the command gcore on Solaris. Is there something similar for AIX ?

I have a Siebel component running on an AIX server and it flunks without anything in the logs. I know when it is in a panic state, hence want to make it core dump before it dies completely.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

is there something like Gencore for Oracle's JDK? – djangofan Mar 17 '11 at 23:26
@djangofan: You might want to ask that question on Stack Overflow. – Dennis Williamson Mar 18 '11 at 0:03
