Bash script for taking java thread dump triggered by CPU load

 

#!/bin/bash

## Title: Bash script for taking java thread dump triggered by CPU load an get notified by email using sendmail.

##Alternative solution to take  java dumps it`s  with jstack -l

## Older dumps will be erase in function of how many days you set it on the “RETENTION_DAYS” variable.

# #!!!Execute this as the user that’s running the java process!!!

##!!! If CPU load will stay over “TRIGGER” a while  the script will run again only after one hour(you can set whatever resting time you want)!!!.
