Thread dump via API?

I'm using the v20.5 java agent.

 

Is there a way to trigger and download a thread dump via the API?  I don't see one.

 

In the UI, we can do something like this:

  1. Go to node
  2. Go to agent tab
  3. Request agent log files
  4. Collect x thread dumps y millis apart
  5. Download resulting files

I would like to automate that.

 

thanks

Hi @John.Gregg,

 

I did some searching and found this. It seems API can be used to initiate a thread dump, but not download.

This example creates an action of the type Thread Dump. See Download Examples.

{
"actionType": "THREAD_DUMP",
"name": "Thread Dump Action",
"numberOfThreadDumps": 2,
"intervalInMs": 500,
"approvalBeforeExecution": {
"requireApproval": true,
"approverEmail": "email@website.com"
}
}


Thanks,
