Language Server constantly busy, can't toggle debug mode


#1

Hello everyone,

I am trying to use the vs-code julia extension, however, the julia language server is constantly busy. The output console just prints:
[Error - 17:28:38] Connection to server is erroring. Shutting down server.

I tried to get more debug info. I read here, that I can toggle debug mode by changing the line:
server = LanguageServerInstance(STDIN, conn, ls_debug_mode, Base.ARGS[1])
to
server = LanguageServerInstance(STDIN, conn, true, Base.ARGS[1])

but still, I just get the same output of

Connection to server is erroring. Shutting down server.

Any ideas?

Do you get an option to submit a crash report? If so, please do that, then we get a full stack trace of what went wrong automatically and can (once we have some time…) try to fix this.

Sadly no, it’s just this message.


#4

I’m experiencing exactly same problem. How can I obtain the crash dump? It’s running somewhere hidden, only error message is displayed on the console out.


#5

OK, now VS code offered a remote report of the crash to developers - I hope that the crash-dump will reach you David. I’ve emitted almost dozen of them.
Is there a location I can look for a full crash dump that I could upload? Or is the automatic crash dump enough?

@Avi, are you on the latest version of the julia extension? We just added the option to send crash reports.

@phlavenk Thanks for submitting! It should be enough to to click “yes” on that, it will then automatically upload to our telemetry story and we can take a look.

No promise though on when we’ll be able to fix this, both @ZacLN and I have been quite busy lately with other stuff.

I am on 0.10.2. I set send telemetry to true for now, maybe that will do something in the future (it was null before)


#8

That setting will only send anonymous usage stats. There is another setting for crash reports, which is the one that would help us in this situation (hopefully).


#9

Ok, I set that to true too.
