How to get the gdb stack trace from the SpectroSERVER core dump on Linux
Please install the Linux GNU GDB Debugger on the SS.
Please provide the "where", "info threads" and "thread apply all bt full" from the GDB output.
a) As root, cd to the $SPECROOT/SS directory
b) If the file in the SS directory has not been renamed, rename the core
file to something other than core so what if mdb crashes it will not
overwrite the core file (ie. mv core core.1)
c) Execute the following and a few lines of data will print to the screen:
d) gdb SpectroSERVER <core_file>
Example: gdb SpectroSERVER core.1000
e) Type "where" (without the quotes) and hit enter
f) Several lines of data (the contents of the stack) will print out
g) Type "info threads" (without the quotes) and hit enter
h) Several lines of data (the contents of the stack) will print out
i) Type "thread apply all bt full" (without the quotes) and hit enter
j) Type $Q to quit out of gdb
k) Copy and paste the entire output into a file named gdb.out and send to us.
