pthdb_pthread_arg reports the initial argument passed to the pthread's start function.

pthdb_pthread_addr reports the address of the pthread_t.

pthdb_pthread_cancelpend reports non-zero if cancellation is pending on the pthread; if not, it reports zero.

pthdb_pthread_cancelstate reports whether cancellation is enabled (PCS_ENABLE) or disabled (PCS_DISABLE). PCS_NOTSUP is reserved for unexpected results.

pthdb_pthread_canceltype reports whether cancellation is deferred (PCT_DEFERRED) or asynchronous (PCT_ASYNCHRONOUS). PCT_NOTSUP is reserved for unexpected results.

pthdb_pthread_detachstate reports whether the pthread is detached (PDS_DETACHED) or joinable (PDS_JOINABLE). PDS_NOTSUP is reserved for unexpected results.

pthdb_pthread_exit reports the exit status returned by the pthread via pthread_exit. This is only valid if the pthread has exited (PST_TERM).

pthdb_pthread_func reports the address of the pthread's start function.

pthdb_pthread_ptid reports the pthread identifier (pthread_t) associated with the pthread.

pthdb_pthread_schedparam reports the pthread's scheduling parameters. This currently includes policy and priority.

pthdb_pthread_schedpolicy reports whether the pthread's scheduling policy is other (SP_OTHER), first in first out (SP_FIFO), or round robin (SP_RR). SP_NOTSUP is reserved for unexpected results.

pthdb_pthread_schedpriority reports the pthread's scheduling priority.

pthdb_pthread_scope reports whether the pthread has process scope (PS_PROCESS) or system scope (PS_SYSTEM). PS_NOTSUP is reserved for unexpected results.

pthdb_pthread_state reports whether the pthread is being created (PST_IDLE), currently running (PST_RUN), waiting on an event (PST_SLEEP), waiting on a cpu (PST_READY), or waiting on a join or detach (PST_TERM). PST_NOTSUP is reserved for unexpected results.

pthdb_pthread_suspendstate reports whether the pthread is suspended (PSS_SUSPENDED) or not (PSS_UNSUSPENDED). PSS_NOTSUP is reserved for unexpected results.

pthdb_ptid_pthread reports the pthread for the ptid.
