Tool to print python thread and greenlet stacks

Project description



The pystack is to python as jstack is to java.

It's a debug tool to print python threads or greenlet stacks.

Idea stolen from pyrasite.


$ pip install pystack-debugger


You may need to run it with sudo.

$ sudo pystack [--include-greenlet] <pid>


PyPI - Python Version PyPI - Implementation

The pystack is compatible with CPython 2.7+ and CPython 3.6+ in both client (the debugger) and server (the destination process).

Using PyPy may work in client (the debugger) but it is untested. Do not attempt to attach a PyPI process as destination since the pystack debugger uses gdb/lldb to invoke the CPython ABI.
