IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 Help

Debug Tool Window. Dump

This tab appears when the Dump button dumpThreadsIcon is clicked on the Debugger toolbar, or on choosing Run | Get Thread Dump on the main menu.

Use this tab to review the external thread dump or the one taken from the debugger in a handy way. The tab is divided into two parts. The left one displays all threads, and the right one - the stack trace for the selected thread.

In the Dump tab, all threads are sorted so that the most meaningful and useful threads are on top of the list. For your convenience, threads are displayed in varying shades of gray text, and deadlocks are highlighted in red.
