repoze.debug threads middleware

The threads middleware, when put into the pipeline, allows you to visit a /debug_threads URL, which provides a plaintext report representing the state of each currently running thread in the process. This is useful for debugging deadlocks. The threads middleware uses code from the Deadlock Debugger package by Florent Guillame.

Configuration via Python

Wire up the middleware in your application:

from repoze.debug.threads import MonitoringMiddleware
middleware = MonitoringMiddleware(app)

Configuration via Paste

Use the ‘egg:repoze.debug#threads’ entry point in your Paste configuration, e.g.:

pipeline = egg:Paste#cgitb

The middleware accepts no configuration parameters.
