Backtrace !!LINK!!

A backtrace is a list of the function calls that are currentlyactive in a thread. The usual way to inspect a backtrace of a programis to use an external debugger such as gdb. However, sometimes it isuseful to obtain a backtrace programmatically from within a program,e.g., for the purposes of logging or diagnostics.


The backtrace function obtains a backtrace for the currentthread, as a list of pointers, and places the information intobuffer. The argument size should be the number ofvoid * elements that will fit into buffer. The returnvalue is the actual number of entries of buffer that are obtained,and is at most size.

Note that certain compiler optimizations may interfere with obtaining avalid backtrace. Function inlining causes the inlined function to nothave a stack frame; tail call optimization replaces one stack frame withanother; frame pointer elimination will stop backtrace frominterpreting the stack contents correctly.

The backtrace_symbols function translates the informationobtained from the backtrace function into an array of strings.The argument buffer should be a pointer to an array of addressesobtained via the backtrace function, and size is the numberof entries in that array (the return value of backtrace).

The return value of backtrace_symbols is a pointer obtained viathe malloc function, and it is the responsibility of the callerto free that pointer. Note that only the return value need befreed, not the individual strings.

The backtrace_symbols_fd function performs the same translationas the function backtrace_symbols function. Instead of returningthe strings to the caller, it writes the strings to the file descriptorfd, one per line. It does not use the malloc function, andcan therefore be used in situations where that function might fail.

The following program illustrates the use of these functions. Note thatthe array to contain the return addresses returned by backtraceis allocated on the stack. Therefore code like this can be used insituations where the memory handling via malloc does not workanymore (in which case the backtrace_symbols has to be replacedby a backtrace_symbols_fd call as well). The number of returnaddresses is normally not very large. Even complicated programs ratherseldom have a nesting level of more than, say, 50 and with 200 possibleentries probably all programs should be covered.

A backtrace is a summary of how your program got where it is. It shows oneline per frame, for many frames, starting with the currently executingframe (frame zero), followed by its caller (frame one), and on up thestack.

To print a backtrace of the entire stack, use the backtracecommand, or its alias bt. This command will print one line perframe for frames in the stack. By default, all stack frames areprinted. You can stop the backtrace at any time by typing the systeminterrupt character, normally Ctrl-c.

Do not run Python frame filters on this backtrace. See Frame Filter API, for more information. Additionally use disable frame-filter all to turn off all frame filters. This is onlyrelevant when GDB has been configured with Pythonsupport.

In a multi-threaded program, GDB by default shows thebacktrace only for the current thread. To display the backtrace forseveral or all of the threads, use the command thread apply(see thread apply). For example, if you type threadapply all backtrace, GDB will display the backtrace for allthe threads; this is handy when you debug a core dump of amulti-threaded program.

Eliminate the time-consuming struggle of looking for a needle in a haystack. Service backtrace pinpoints where service calls originate in your code. The stacktrace of calls gives you method details within the context of a specific call chain.

Stop hunting down problems and start fixing them. Service backtrace lets you know the reasons for failed requests. With just one click, you understand which requests fail and the Dynatrace artificial intelligence engine determines the underlying root causes and errors.

If you use the k command at the beginning of a function (before the function prolog has been executed), you receive incorrect results. The debugger uses the frame register to compute the current backtrace, and this register isn't set correctly for a function until its prolog has been executed.

Second, your copy of Asterisk must have been built without optimization or the backtrace will be (nearly) unusable. This can be done by selecting the 'DONT_OPTIMIZE' option in the Compiler Flags submenu in the 'make menuselect' tree before building Asterisk. Running a production server with DONT_OPTIMIZE is generally safe. You'll notice the binary files may be a bit larger, but in terms of Asterisk performance, impact should be negligible.

Asterisk versions 13.14.0, 14.3.0, and later release branches added a few tools to make debugging easier. One of these is ast_coredumper. By default, it's installed in /var/lib/asterisk/scripts and it takes in a core file and produces backtraces and lock dumps in a format for uploading to Jira.

Dynatrace understands your applications transactions from end to end. This transactional insight is visualized several ways like the backtrace. The backtrace tree view represents the sequence of services that led to this service call, beginning with the page load or user action in the browser.

Returns maximum backtrace length set by --backtrace-limit command-line option. The defalt is -1 which means unlimited backtraces. If the value is zero or positive, the error backtraces, produced by Exception#full_message, are abbreviated and the extra lines are replaced by ... 3 levels...

This document explains one set of methods for getting backtraces for ROS 2 and Nav2.There are many ways to accomplish this, but this is a good starting point for new C++ developers without GDB experience.

This will cover how to get a backtrace from a specific node using ros2 run, from a launch file representing a single node using ros2 launch, and from a more complex orchestration of nodes.By the end of this tutorial, you should be able to get a backtrace when you notice a server crashing in ROS 2.

Using GDB luckily is fairly simple after you have the basics under your belt.The first step is to add -g to your compiler flags for the ROS package you want to profile / debug.This flag builds debug symbols that GDB and valgrind can read to tell you specific lines of code in your project are failing and why.If you do not set this flag, you can still get backtraces but it will not provide line numbers for failures.Be sure to remove this flag after debugging, it will slow down performance at run-time.

Printexc.catch fn x is similar to Printexc.print, but aborts the program with exit code 2 after printing the uncaught exception. This function is deprecated: the runtime system is now able to print uncaught exceptions as precisely as Printexc.catch does. Moreover, calling Printexc.catch makes it harder to track the location of the exception using the debugger or the stack backtrace facility. So, do not use Printexc.catch in new code.

Printexc.print_backtrace oc prints an exception backtrace on the output channel oc. The backtrace lists the program locations where the most-recently raised exception was raised and where it was propagated through function calls.

If the call is not inside an exception handler, the returned backtrace is unspecified. If the call is after some exception-catching code (before in the handler, or in a when-guard during the matching of the exception handler), the backtrace may correspond to a later exception than the handled one.

Printexc.record_backtrace b turns recording of exception backtraces on (if b = true) or off (if b = false). Initially, backtraces are not recorded, unless the b flag is given to the program through the OCAMLRUNPARAM variable.

When using this mechanism, one should be aware that an exception backtrace is attached to the thread that saw it raised, rather than to the exception itself. Practically, it means that the code related to fn should not use the backtrace if it has itself raised an exception before.

A raw_backtrace_entry can be converted to a usable form using backtrace_slots_of_raw_entry below. Note that, due to inlining, a single raw_backtrace_entry may convert to several backtrace_slots. Since the values of a raw_backtrace_entry are not stable, they cannot be marshalled. If they are to be converted, the conversion must be done by the process that generated them.

Again due to inlining, there may be multiple distinct raw_backtrace_entry values that convert to equal backtrace_slots. However, if two raw_backtrace_entrys are equal as integers, then they represent the same backtrace_slots.

Like raw_backtrace_entry, values of this type are process-specific and must absolutely not be marshalled, and are unsafe to use for this reason (marshalling them may not fail, but un-marshalling and using the result will result in undefined behavior).

E.4 Backtraces When the kernel panics, it prints a "backtrace," that is, a summaryof how your program got where it is, as a list of addresses inside thefunctions that were running at the time of the panic. You can alsoinsert a call to debug_backtrace(), prototyped in, to print a backtrace at any point in your code.debug_backtrace_all(), also declared in , prints backtraces of all threads.

The addresses in a backtrace are listed as raw hexadecimal numbers,which are difficult to interpret. We provide a tool calledbacktrace to translate these into function names and sourcefile line numbers.Give it the name of your kernel.o as the first argument and thehexadecimal numbers composing the backtrace (including the 0xprefixes) as the remaining arguments. It outputs the function nameand source file line numbers that correspond to each address.

If the translated form of a backtrace is garbled, or doesn't makesense (e.g. function A is listed above function B, but B doesn'tcall A), then it's a good sign that you're corrupting a kernelthread's stack, because the backtrace is extracted from the stack.Alternatively, it could be that the kernel.o you passed tobacktrace is not the same kernel that producedthe backtrace. 041b061a72
