Manually generating thread dump in jboss 4 or 5

Posted by madeeswer 2468 days ago (Editorial)

Thread dumps are generated by JVM either automatically or manually. In order to figure out a problem proactively, we might require to generate thread dumps in various scenarios.

Thread dumps are generated using the following command

kill -3 pid

e.g. kill -3 2025


PID is the JVM's process id.

Kill is a command used to send various signals to process.

-3 signal will ask the JVM to generate thread dumps. So JVM generates thread dump for 3 signal.


For JBoss, thread dumps are generated in the standard output. If the instance is started in foreground using then the thread dump can be seen on the terminal.
