Thanks to Jeff Hodge for reminding me that I had not yet summarized this.

Original question:

Responses: and Umesh C Singhal both pointed at truss with -l
and -f
options. u-kevin also mentioned pstack and gdb. indicated that the Sun Workshop has some utilities that might
be useful,
although I have not yet looked at them, so I can't summarize those. suggested looking at man libpthread_db.

I already knew about truss, and I believe this is what this programmer ended
up using...
or at least he has not come back to me with any more info. :-)

Thanks, all.
