Counting Threads Created in the JVM


Here, I wanted to find out how many threads related java.net.HttpClient were created in the JVM:

$ jstack $(pidof java) | grep '"HttpClient'
"HttpClient-1-SelectorManager" #19 daemon prio=5 os_prio=0 cpu=35.95ms elapsed=772.93s tid=0x00007fb72c0b7000 nid=0x2b46 runnable  [0x00007fb770a02000]
"HttpClient-2-SelectorManager" #20 daemon prio=5 os_prio=0 cpu=361.35ms elapsed=772.92s tid=0x00007fb72c0d5800 nid=0x2b47 runnable  [0x00007fb770701000]
"HttpClient-2-Worker-2" #23 daemon prio=5 os_prio=0 cpu=736.50ms elapsed=772.78s tid=0x00007fb714012800 nid=0x2b4a waiting on condition  [0x00007fb7703fe000]

Here, you can see that 2 of the threads belong to the same HttpClient instance. You can tell because they have the same root in the thread name, HttpClient-2-.. and they have the same memory address, 0x00007fb7703fe000.
