Stack trace in Linux

A stack trace represents a trace contained in a core type file. This file is generated in the event of a machine error. It can identify the origin of the error.

  • A core file is named core.<num>.
  • gdb - The GNU Debugger must be installed on the machine.

Adobe Campaign technical support can ask you for this stack trace. To obtain it, enter the following commands in Linux:

su - neolane
gdb nlserver <coreFile>
//You get lots of output but the stack trace (or Back trace) can be obtained with : 
(gdb) bt
// and forward all the output : 
#0 0x0836c189 in ObjectValue::SetPropertyTarget ()
#1 0x082623b3 in CXtkScriptProperty::VDeclareProperties ()

Adobe Campaign technical support might ask you to run this command using a specific executable (to be supplied by us).

In this case, simply run the following command by replacing nlserver with the executable provided by Adobe Campaign:

gdb nlserver <coreFile>

For example:

gdb nlserver.1823 <coreFile>
