Can anyone recommend a utility/tool to acquire memory from Mac OS  for forensic analysis.  Free is preferred, but welcome all input. 

 

Thanks

I do not have much occasion to capture memory outside of a wayward process misbehaving or failing. The activity monitor feature where you can pick the process and then sample a particular PID in memory really works well.  It is limited to a few hundred samples with a millisecond between samples for about 3 seconds. I do not think this is what you are looking for, but it may help someone else supporting Macs. I think it was available pre Mt. Lion but I won't swear to that.
 
 
insert quaint colloquialisms here
