Look at your combat logs. I don't know if they're in the base logs, but I use TorParse (along with the majority of the SWTOR players, I imagine), and if you look at the actual combat logs, it'll tell you things like "<X ability> hits <enemy> for <damage_value> damage, generating <threat_value> threat!" It will also tell you that certain abilities just generate threat, such as the shadow's and vanguard's pulls, which are a static amount of threat without any damage at all. Same as taunt!

Generally speaking, damage is equal to threat unless you're in a tank stance, in which case threat = 2x damage. If you use a "high-threat" ability - saber reflect as a tank, guardian slash, hilt strike, etc. - that's bumped to 2.5x damage, if I recall correctly.
