jstack(1)                   General Commands Manual                  jstack(1)



NAME
       jstack - Stack Trace


SYNOPSIS
       jstack [ option ] pid
       jstack [ option ] executable core
       jstack [ option ] [server-id@]remote-hostname-or-IP


PARAMETERS
       Options are mutually exclusive. Option, if used, should follow
       immediately after the command name. See OPTIONS.

          pid
             process id for which the stack trace is to be printed. The
             process must be a Java process. To get a list of Java processes
             running on a machine, jps may be used.


          executable
             Java executable from which the core dump was produced.

          core
             core file for which the stack trace is to be printed.

          remote-hostname-or-IP
             remote debug server's (see jsadebugd) hostname or IP address.

          server-id
             optional unique id, if multiple debug servers are running on the
             same remote host.


DESCRIPTION
       jstack prints Java stack traces of Java threads for a given Java
       process or core file or a remote debug server. For each Java frame, the
       full class name, method name, 'bci' (byte code index) and line number,
       if available, are printed. With the -m option, jstack prints both Java
       and native frames of all threads along with the 'pc' (program counter).
       For each native frame, the closest native symbol to 'pc', if available,
       is printed. C++ mangled names are not demangled. To demangle C++ names,
       the output of this command may be piped to c++filt. If the given
       process is running on a 64-bit VM, you may need to specify the -J-d64
       option, e.g.:


          jstack -J-d64 -m pid


       NOTE - This utility is unsupported and may or may not be available in
       future versions of the JDK. The only form of jstack that is available
       on Windows platforms is

           jstack pid


OPTIONS
          -F Forces a stack dump when 'jstack pid' does not respond.

          -m prints mixed mode (both Java and native C/C++ frames) stack
             trace.

          -h prints a help message.

          -help
             prints a help message

KNOWN BUGS
       Mixed mode stack trace, the -m option, does not work with the remote
       debug server.
