resolve_stack_dump: resolve numeric stack trace dump to symbols


resolve_stack_dump - resolve numeric stack trace dump to symbols


resolve_stack_dump [options] symbols_file [numeric_dump_file]



resolves a numeric stack dump to symbols.


resolve_stack_dump is deprecated and is removed in MySQL 8.0. Stack traces from official MySQL builds are always symbolized, so there is no need to use resolve_stack_dump.

Invoke resolve_stack_dump like this:

shell> resolve_stack_dump [options] symbols_file [numeric_dump_file]

The symbols file should include the output from the nm --numeric-sort mysqld command. The numeric dump file should contain a numeric stack track from mysqld. If no numeric dump file is named on the command line, the stack trace is read from the standard input.

resolve_stack_dump supports the following options.

--help, -h

Display a help message and exit.

--numeric-dump-file=file_name, -n file_name

Read the stack trace from the given file.

--symbols-file=file_name, -s file_name

Use the given symbols file.

--version, -V

Display version information and exit.
