I've said it before and I'll say it again: just because your system
has these resources does not mean your process can use all of them.
Unix is a multi-user system, and must share the resources. Be sure
your process is allowed to use the resources you're expected it to get.

You may wish to investigate the "--quick" option to mysqldump.
