Could you send us the profile you created? Also, could you re-run
linux_pslist but add -dd before it and send us that output?

If the memory capture is something you are willing to share with the Vol
devs then we can really debug the issue with the profile and help you get
it sorted. We have a FTP server we could give you access to in order to
upload it.
