This article is part 4 of our Thread Dump analysis series which will provide you with an overview of what is a JVM Thread Dump for the IBM VM and the different Threads and data points that you will find. As you will see and learn, the IBM VM Thread Dump format is different but provides even more out-of-the-box troubleshooting data.
** UPDATE: Thread Dump analysis tutorial videos now available here.
At this point, you should know how Threads interact with the Java EE container and what a Thread Dump is. Before we go any further in the deep dive analysis patterns, you also need to understand the IBM VM Thread Dump format since this is the typical Thread Dump data to expect when using IBM WAS on IBM VM.
