• Get the process id (pid) of the Cascade CMS process by running the command ps aux | grep java . Results will look similar to the following:
cascade   6415  1.2 67.9 8546368 5203156 ?     Sl   Jun28 635:49 /usr/local/cascade/java/jre/bin/java ...

In this example, 6415 is the pid we're looking for.

  • Execute the following command to send a kill signal to the Cascade CMS process: kill -3 <pid>

In this example, the command will be: kill -3 6415
NOTE:  This particular kill  signal will not stop the application. It will simply output a thread dump within the tomcat/logs/catalina.out file.

Windows (service)

  • Open a command prompt using the Run as Administrator option 
  • Change directories into the tomcat/bin  folder. For example: 
cd C:\Program Files\Cascade CMS\tomcat\bin
  • Enter the command CascadeCMSw //MS//
  • A Tomcat Monitor Service icon will appear in the system tray:
  • Right-click the Tomcat Monitor Service icon, then select Thread Dump

NOTE:  Performing this action will not stop the application. The thread dump will be added to the tomcat/logs/cascadecms-stdout.{date} file.
