Debugging Multithreaded Applications

dbx can debug multithreaded applications that use either Solaris threads or POSIX threads. With dbx, you can examine stack traces of each thread, resume all threads, step or next a specific thread, and navigate between threads.

dbx recognizes a multithreaded program by detecting whether it utilizes The program uses either by explicitly being compiled with -lthread or -mt, or implicitly by being compiled with -lpthread.

This chapter describes how to find information about and debug threads using the dbx thread commands.

This chapter is organized into the following sections:
