Could someone reccommend a good thread dump analyzer? is there an open source one that is pretty good at its job? I used one called Samurai and then the other one was the IBM one. But i saw a lot of comments on the IBM one not being able to do the job right. One of my colleagues said all it did was just go thru the dump, it didn't really analyze the information provided in the thread dump. so suggest a good one i could use.

Also, when i looked at the thread dumps using the IBM one, it showed me a couple of threads waiting on monitor but when i asked it to give the monitor details or compare the monitors, it came back saying no information was available in the dump for the monitor state. I really could not understand that part.
Is the monitor information available someplace else or the tool is buggy.
I got the thread dumps by sending a Kill -Quit on the PID.
Thank you.

hi,

Pardon my ignorance. What do you mean by a Thread dump analyzer and what is the exact use of it?

Regards,
Ajay.
