What happen if my thread in process crash??


Hi All ,

I am using linux fedora.
I have a process with at least 15 threads in it ..I tried n saw that if any of my thread crashes then i will get a process dump ..

Is there any possibilty that i only get a thread dump instead of my whole process dump ?? i.e my all thread keep working if my only 1 thread crash ....

This is because the threads are part of the same process space, so it doesn't normally make sense to keep going if a thread has caused a fault signal (especially if it was a segment violation).

If you really need the other threads to keep going, your best bet might be to use pthread_sigmask to catch the signal that caused the fault and put the thread to sleep (and probably log the failure).
