How to capture a thread dump

Created on


Zephyr's threads are causing an issue on the server.


A thread dump can help troubleshoot certain specific issues happening in a service such as Zephyr and are sometimes required for troubleshooting issues


During an issue occurrence (before the machine is restarted), please take the time to capture the thread dump by:

1) Get the process ID of the tomcat service (Task Manager in Windows does this)

2) Download and extract 'pstools' from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896649.aspx and place it in a local folder (ie C:\pstools)

3) As an Administrator user, Run:

C:\pstools\PsExec -s %PATH_TO_JDK%\bin\jstack.exe -l <Tomcat_Process_Id> > threaddump.txt

Email support the thread dump if requested.
