I have a azure webapp running on node.js with a custom docker image. I do not have ssh configured in the image. I need memory dump of the app but I am not able to find it in the Diagnostic tools. Where can I find it ?

    @Siddharth Kundu Thanks for reply! If my understanding is right you are are using Linux azure web app If so, You may want to know that a memory dump for that kind of set up(Custom Image, Node) via Diagnostic Tools will not be available.

    Recommendation here is to configure SSH at a minimum to get what you want.

    Further suggest you to refer this article on Investigating Node.js Memory Leak issue in Linux App Service might be helpful.

    Let us know.
