Hi,

if you just want to see the stack of a process you can use

procstack PID

to print the hexadecimal addresses and symbolic names for all the threads in the process.

If you need a real trace the command to use is

dbx

It has lots of options and parameters, too many to explain here.
The basic format is

dbx -a PID

You will get a prompt. "h" gives you a list of subcommands.

There is a neat wrapper script to dbx from IBM called stackit.ksh

You can get this script as well as usage information here:

Basically you'll have to run

stackit.ksh -p PID

If you want to see system calls, dynamically loaded user level function calls, received signals, and incurred machine faults
of a process then

truss -p PID

would be an option.
