Hello Lars Volker, Tim Armstrong, Dan Hecht, Impala Public Jenkins,

I'd like you to reexamine a change. Please visit


to look at the new patch set (#7).

Change subject: IMPALA-6416: extend Thread::Create to track instance id

IMPALA-6416: extend Thread::Create to track instance id

This commit builds upon IMPALA-3703. Each thread that
was created through Thread::Create() has a ThreadDebugInfo
object on the stack frame of Thread::SuperviseThread().
This object has stack allocated char buffers that can be
read during a debug session even if we only have minidumps.

However, with the old solution ThreadDebugInfo::instance_id
was set manually for each thread. It is too easy to forget
to set instance_id every time we create a new thread.

This commit has the assumption that if a thread has an
instance id associated, then the threads spawned by it will
always work on the same instance id. In Thread::StartThread
the parent thread passes its ThreadDebugInfo object to
its child who copies the instance id, and also stores the
name and system thread id of its parent.

This means if we set ThreadDebugInfo::instance_id in some
"root thread", then all descendant threads will annotate
themselves with the instance id automatically. Since threads
also record the name (and a system thread id) of their parent,
it might be also possible to reconstruct the thread creation

With GDB I tested if it copies the instance id at every
place where we previously needed to set it manually.

I added an automated test to thread-debug-info-test.cc
