NAME

       uthreads, cthreads, javathreads - Trace thread creation events in Java or pthreads.

SYNOPSIS

       cthreads  [-h]  [-v] pid  javathreads [-h] [-v] pid  uthreads [-h] [-l {c,java,none}] [-v]
       pid

DESCRIPTION

       This traces thread creation events in Java processes, or pthread creation  events  in  any
       process. When a thread is created, its name or start address is printed.

       Since this uses BPF, only the root user can use this tool.

REQUIREMENTS

       CONFIG_BPF and bcc.

OPTIONS

       -l {c,java,none}
              The  language  to trace. C and none select tracing pthreads only, regardless of the
              runtime being traced.

       -v     Print the resulting BPF program, for debugging purposes.

       pid    The process id to trace.

EXAMPLES

       Trace Java thread creations:
              # uthreads -l java 148

       Trace pthread creations:
              # uthreads 1802

FIELDS

       TIME   The event's time in seconds from the beginning of the trace.

       ID     The thread's ID. The information in this column depends on the runtime.

       TYPE   Event type -- thread start, stop, or pthread event.

       DESCRIPTION
              The thread's name or start address function name.

OVERHEAD

       Thread start and stop events are usually  not  very  frequent,  which  makes  this  tool's
       overhead negligible.
