IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version

Suspend a thread

An executing thread is active, and a paused thread is suspended. Suspend a thread if there is a problem with it and you want to uncover the cause.

Suspend a thread:

  1. From the top navigation,

  2. Select a group and a server from the list boxes. The Server Activity Display (Active Requests) page opens.

  3. Click the link in the Client Request column. The Request Detail page for that request opens.

  4. From the Change Thread Status list box, select Suspend.

  5. Click OK.


When suspending a thread, there is a danger that the request might hold database locks or system resources. After you suspend the request, any other requests that require the removal of those locks or monitors are also suspended. Any locks in the application server and database server are not released after the system suspends a thread. This can cause other applications to fail or hang.
