[clug] makedumpfile options that allow you to see what user process were running

Hi all,

I'm having an issue with one particular box where it is crashing due to
memory consumption. I'd set up kdump & friends, and had used the -d 31
option to makedumpfile to exclude user data (among a bunch of other things.
Before I go off on the tedious exercise of crashing a box and using various
different flags for the makedumpfile to see which one will allow me to find
what I need, has anyone else had to go through this process and found
what's a useful argument to the -d option?
