This document provides guidelines on how to generate a stack trace using GDB for the OBIEE System Components.  GDB is preferred for the detailed output it provides if available on your platform.

A stack trace debug output on a core file may be requested by Oracle Support / Development to troubleshoot OBIEE  crashes and / or hangs.


Windows crashes should be debugged with ADPlus, see: <Document 958101.1> OBIEE 10g-12c: Steps To Generate An ADPlus Stack Trace To Debug A Crash OR Hang On Windows

Java crashed create a file like javacore*.txt, these do not need to be analyzed by GDB or other debugger.  Please see: E-WL: <Document 659452.1> How to Create a Thread Dump with WebLogic Server 9.2 and 10.3
For OBIEE, the three potential components to produce javacore*.txt are:  Weblogic AdminServer JVM, Weblogic Managed Server (bi_serverX) JVM, JavaHost
