ProcDump v1.5 - command-line for monitoring

ProcDump is a command-line utility whose primary purpose is monitoring an application for CPU spikes and generating crash dumps during a spike that an administrator or developer can use to determine the cause of the spike. ProcDump also includes hung window monitoring (using the same definition of a window hang that Windows and Task Manager use) and unhandled exception monitoring. It also can serve as a general process dump utility that you can embed in other scripts.

Using ProcDump

procdump [-64] [-c CPU usage [-u] [-s seconds] [-n exceeds]] [-h] [-e] [-t] [-ma] [-r] [-o] [[< process name or PID > [dump file]] | [-x < image file > < dump file > [arguments]]

Variable Description
-64 By default Procdump will capture a 32-bit dump of a 32-bit process when running on 64-bit Windows. This option overrides to create a 64-bit dump.
-c CPU threshold at which to create a dump of the process.
-e Write a dump when the process encounters an unhandled exception.
-h Write dump if process has a hung window.
-ma Write a dump file with all process memory. The defaultdump format includes thread and handle information.
-n Number of dumps to write before exiting.
-o Overwrite an existing dump file.
-r Reflect (clone) the process for the dump to minimize the time the process is suspended (Windows 7 and higher only).
-s Consecutive seconds CPU threshold must be hit before dump is written (default is 10).
-t Write a dump when the process terminates.
-u Treat CPU usage relative to a single core.
-x Launch the specified image with optional arguments.
