Get the stack trace when a process craches
Posted on 2002-05-28
I want to get the stack trace updated to a log when a running process crashes due to an exception.
It is a C process runnung on unix. After some search, I came thro U_STACK_TRACE(), which in cordination with signal() call, solves my problem in HP unix. But this(U_STACK_TRACE) is not there in SUN and DIGITAL servers.
In SUN I was able to solve the same using pstack utility.
But DIGITAL is still out of my reach.
I am now in look for something which works identical in all the three servers. Is there any way(using some system calls or something) by which I can print the stack, when the process crashes, which works identically in all the three(HP. SUN & DIGI) servers.
