[Q] print all ruby thread stacks?

I am trying to debug a ruby program that periodically hangs when run
under jruby. It runs okay under MRI (1.8.7 and 1.9.1).

Is there a way for me to install a signal handler that prints all of the
thread callstacks and exits? This would help me pinpoint where in the
code it is hanging.

I was thinking something along the lines of this:

need to use ABRT since jruby doesn’t see a ctrl-c and I need to send

it

a kill -9 to exit

trap ‘ABRT’ do
@threads.each do |thread|
# print callstack?
end
end

I’d appreciate any help in this matter. Thank you…

control-\ should dump all the stacks. Can that work or is this a daemon?

I tried to interrupt it in the shell with control-\ but it is still
hung. The only way I can kill it is with a -9.

Maybe the entire interpreter is hanging. I’m kind of stuck and don’t
know how to interrupt its execution and still get any relevant data.

I just tried attaching to the process using jvisualvm (this is on OSX
10.6.2 running JRuby 1.4.0 release and the 64-bit JVM).

Jvisualvm was unable to attach so I couldn’t do a thread dump or heap
dump. Something is getting majorly hosed here…

Running my code against 1.5.0-dev (head) never hangs. However, I do run
into that #map bug that I’ve written about in another thread. I now have
a little workaround for that so I can successfully run my code against
head.

Nevermind!

Kill -3 {pid} is another way of getting thread dumps.

Cheers,

James

jruby-prof 0.1

This is a clone of ruby-prof for JRuby. It supports all the usual output
modes, plus a call tree output mode. The only measure mode it currently
supports is wall time.

*** NB. This is really new code. It probably has lots of bugs and
things. ***

I wrote a blog post about it here:
http://danlucraft.com/blog/2010/03/jruby-prof/

Please try it out and let me know if it doesn’t work for you!

INSTALL

$ jruby -S gem install jruby-prof

SOURCE

http://github.com/danlucraft/jruby-prof

USAGE

In your program:

require 'rubygems'
require 'jruby-prof'

result = JRubyProf.profile do
  # my stuff
end

JRubyProf.print_flat_text(result, "flat.txt")
JRubyProf.print_graph_text(result, "graph.txt")
JRubyProf.print_graph_html(result, "graph.html")
JRubyProf.print_call_tree(result, "call_tree.txt")
JRubyProf.print_tree_html(result, "call_tree.html")

In order to tell JRuby to send events to JRubyProf for processing, you
must
run your script with the debug flag on:

$ jruby --debug my_script.rb

Thanks,
Dan

Hot diggity! Finally a nice Ruby-land profiler for JRuby!

If this looks good to everyone, it might be a nice one to
pre-install…or not? Maybe we can just leave it as a gem in the wild
and people can install it if they want to?

I always prefer non-core stuff as a gem.
