Monitoring threads

Martini was designed to handle multi-threaded processes. You can conveniently check ongoing threads through its administrator REST API and user interface.

Via the user interface

To access the Threads page, open the Martini Runtime Admin UI in your browser. From the main menu, select Server Status, and then click Threads from the appearing submenu.

The Martini Runtime Admin UI is only available in the Martini Runtime Edition.

This page will list all running threads and their state. Clicking on a thread name will show an information panel that displays more details about the thread.

Via the REST API

Martini also provides REST endpoints for retrieving thread information. This API allows you to remotely do things such as:

  • Retrieve a list of running threads
  • Retrieve more information about a thread
  • View a thread's stacktrace
