       jstack -	Prints Java thread stack traces	for a Java process, core file,
       or remote debug server. This command is experimental and	unsupported.

       jstack [	options	] pid

       jstack [	options	] executable core

       jstack [	options	] [ server-id@ ] remote-hostname-or-IP

	      The command-line options.	See Options.

       pid    The process ID for which the stack trace is printed. The process
	      must be a	Java process. To get a list of Java processes running
	      on a machine, use	the jps(1) command.

	      The Java executable from which the core dump was produced.

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

	      The remote debug server hostname or IP address. See

	      An optional unique ID to use when	multiple debug servers are
	      running on the same remote host.

       The jstack command prints Java stack traces of Java threads for a
       specified Java process, core file, or remote debug server. For each
       Java frame, the full class name,	method name, byte code index (BCI),
       and line	number,	when available,	are printed. With the -m option, the
       jstack command prints both Java and native frames of all	threads	with
       the program counter (PC). For each native frame,	the closest native
       symbol to PC, when available, is	printed. C++ mangled names are not
       demangled. To demangle C++ names, the output of this command can	be
       piped to	c++filt. When the specified process is running on a 64-bit
       Java Virtual Machine, you might need to specify the -J-d64 option, for
       example:	jstack -J-d64 -m pid.

       Note: This utility is unsupported and might not be available in future
       release of the JDK. In Windows Systems where the	dbgeng.dll file	is not
       present,	Debugging Tools	For Windows must be installed so these tools
       work. The PATH environment variable needs to contain the	location of
       the jvm.dll that	is used	by the target process, or the location from
       which the crash dump file was produced. For example:

       set PATH=<jdk>\jre\bin\client;%PATH%

	      Force a stack dump when jstack [-l] pid does not respond.

	      Long listing. Prints additional information about	locks such as
	      a	list of	owned java.util.concurrent ownable synchronizers. See
	      the AbstractOwnableSynchronizer class description	at

	      Prints a mixed mode stack	trace that has both Java and native
	      C/C++ frames.

	      Prints a help message.

	      Prints a help message.

       In mixed	mode stack trace, the -m option	does not work with the remote
       debug server.
