Method Detail

getThreadId

public long getThreadId()
Returns the ID of the thread associated with this ThreadInfo.

Returns:
the ID of the associated thread.

getThreadName

public String getThreadName()
Returns the name of the thread associated with this ThreadInfo.

Returns:
the name of the associated thread.

getThreadState

public Thread.State getThreadState()
Returns the state of the thread associated with this ThreadInfo.

Returns:
Thread.State of the associated thread.

getBlockedTime

public long getBlockedTime()
Returns the approximate accumulated elapsed time (in milliseconds) that the thread associated with this ThreadInfo has blocked to enter or reenter a monitor since thread contention monitoring is enabled. I.e. the total accumulated time the thread has been in the BLOCKED state since thread contention monitoring was last enabled. This method returns -1 if thread contention monitoring is disabled.

The Java virtual machine may measure the time with a high resolution timer. This statistic is reset when the thread contention monitoring is reenabled.

Returns:
the approximate accumulated elapsed time in milliseconds that a thread entered the BLOCKED state; -1 if thread contention monitoring is disabled.
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the Java virtual machine does not support this operation.
See Also:
ThreadMXBean.isThreadContentionMonitoringSupported(), ThreadMXBean.setThreadContentionMonitoringEnabled(boolean)

getBlockedCount

public long getBlockedCount()
Returns the total number of times that the thread associated with this ThreadInfo blocked to enter or reenter a monitor. I.e. the number of times a thread has been in the BLOCKED state.

Returns:
the total number of times that the thread entered the BLOCKED state.

getWaitedTime

public long getWaitedTime()
Returns the approximate accumulated elapsed time (in milliseconds) that the thread associated with this ThreadInfo has waited for notification since thread contention monitoring is enabled. I.e. the total accumulated time the thread has been in the WAITING or TIMED_WAITING state since thread contention monitoring is enabled. This method returns -1 if thread contention monitoring is disabled.

The Java virtual machine may measure the time with a high resolution timer. This statistic is reset when the thread contention monitoring is reenabled.

Returns:
the approximate accumulated elapsed time in milliseconds that a thread has been in the WAITING or TIMED_WAITING state; -1 if thread contention monitoring is disabled.
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the Java virtual machine does not support this operation.
See Also:
ThreadMXBean.isThreadContentionMonitoringSupported(), ThreadMXBean.setThreadContentionMonitoringEnabled(boolean)

getWaitedCount

public long getWaitedCount()
Returns the total number of times that the thread associated with this ThreadInfo waited for notification. I.e. the number of times that a thread has been in the WAITING or TIMED_WAITING state.

Returns:
the total number of times that the thread was in the WAITING or TIMED_WAITING state.

getLockInfo

public LockInfo getLockInfo()
Returns the LockInfo of an object for which the thread associated with this ThreadInfo is blocked waiting. A thread can be blocked waiting for one of the following:

This method returns null if the thread is not in any of the above conditions.

Returns:
LockInfo of an object for which the thread is blocked waiting if any; null otherwise.
Since:
1.6

getLockName

public String getLockName()
Returns the string representation of an object for which the thread associated with this ThreadInfo is blocked waiting. This method is equivalent to calling:
 getLockInfo().toString()
 

This method will return null if this thread is not blocked waiting for any object or if the object is not owned by any thread.

Returns:
the string representation of the object on which the thread is blocked if any; null otherwise.
See Also:
getLockInfo()

getLockOwnerId

public long getLockOwnerId()
Returns the ID of the thread which owns the object for which the thread associated with this ThreadInfo is blocked waiting. This method will return -1 if this thread is not blocked waiting for any object or if the object is not owned by any thread.

Returns:
the thread ID of the owner thread of the object this thread is blocked on; -1 if this thread is not blocked or if the object lis not owned by any thread.
See Also:
getLockInfo()

getLockOwnerName

public String getLockOwnerName()
Returns the name of the thread which owns the object for which the thread associated with this ThreadInfo is blocked waiting. This method will return null if this thread is not blocked waiting for any object or if the object is not owned by any thread.

Returns:
the name of the thread that owns the object this thread is blocked on; null if this thread is not blocked or if the object is not owned by any thread.
See Also:
getLockInfo()

getStackTrace

public StackTraceElement[] getStackTrace()
Returns the stack trace of the thread associated with this ThreadInfo. If no stack trace was requested for this thread info, this method will return a zero-length array. If the returned array is of non-zero length then the first element of the array represents the top of the stack, which is the most recent method invocation in the sequence. The last element of the array represents the bottom of the stack, which is the least recent method invocation in the sequence.

Some Java virtual machines may, under some circumstances, omit one or more stack frames from the stack trace. In the extreme case, a virtual machine that has no stack trace information concerning the thread associated with this ThreadInfo is permitted to return a zero-length array from this method.

Returns:
an array of StackTraceElement objects of the thread.

isSuspended

public boolean isSuspended()
Tests if the thread associated with this ThreadInfo is suspended. This method returns true if Thread.suspend() has been called.

Returns:
true if the thread is suspended; false otherwise.

isInNative

public boolean isInNative()
Tests if the thread associated with this ThreadInfo is executing native code via the Java Native Interface (JNI). The JNI native code does not include the virtual machine support code or the compiled native code generated by the virtual machine.

Returns:
true if the thread is executing native code; false otherwise.

toString

public String toString()
Returns a string representation of this thread info. The format of this string depends on the implementation. The returned string will typically include the thread name, the thread ID, its state, and a stack trace if any.

Overrides:
toString in class Object
Returns:
a string representation of this thread info.

from

public static ThreadInfo from(CompositeData cd)
Returns a ThreadInfo object represented by the given CompositeData. The given CompositeData must contain the following attributes unless otherwise specified below:
Attribute Name Type
threadId java.lang.Long
threadName java.lang.String
threadState java.lang.String
suspended java.lang.Boolean
inNative java.lang.Boolean
blockedCount java.lang.Long
blockedTime java.lang.Long
waitedCount java.lang.Long
waitedTime java.lang.Long
lockInfo javax.management.openmbean.CompositeData - the mapped type for LockInfo as specified in the type mapping rules of MXBeans.

If cd does not contain this attribute, the LockInfo object will be constructed from the value of the lockName attribute.

lockName java.lang.String
lockOwnerId java.lang.Long
lockOwnerName java.lang.String
stackTrace javax.management.openmbean.CompositeData[]

Each element is a CompositeData representing StackTraceElement containing the following attributes:

Attribute Name Type
className java.lang.String
methodName java.lang.String
fileName java.lang.String
lineNumber java.lang.Integer
nativeMethod java.lang.Boolean
lockedMonitors javax.management.openmbean.CompositeData[] whose element type is the mapped type for MonitorInfo as specified in the Monitor.from method.

If cd does not contain this attribute, this attribute will be set to an empty array.

lockedSynchronizers javax.management.openmbean.CompositeData[] whose element type is the mapped type for LockInfo as specified in the type mapping rules of MXBeans.

If cd does not contain this attribute, this attribute will be set to an empty array.

Parameters:
cd - CompositeData representing a ThreadInfo
Returns:
a ThreadInfo object represented by cd if cd is not null; null otherwise.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if cd does not represent a ThreadInfo with the attributes described above.

getLockedMonitors

public MonitorInfo[] getLockedMonitors()
Returns an array of MonitorInfo objects, each of which represents an object monitor currently locked by the thread associated with this ThreadInfo. If no locked monitor was requested for this thread info or no monitor is locked by the thread, this method will return a zero-length array.

Returns:
an array of MonitorInfo objects representing the object monitors locked by the thread.
Since:
1.6

getLockedSynchronizers

public LockInfo[] getLockedSynchronizers()
Returns an array of LockInfo objects, each of which represents an ownable synchronizer currently locked by the thread associated with this ThreadInfo. If no locked synchronizer was requested for this thread info or no synchronizer is locked by the thread, this method will return a zero-length array.

Returns:
an array of LockInfo objects representing the ownable synchronizers locked by the thread.
