Collect diagnostic information by using Database tools

  1. Right-click a data source and navigate to Database tools.

  2. Depending on your policy for sensitive data and information, select between the following options:

    • Diagnostic Refresh: reloads the metadata from the database and generates a LOG file. The LOG file might include names of database objects and other information that you might consider sensitive.

      Diagnostic refresh
    • Prepare Introspector Diagnostic: generates three files that include information about the data source (dataSource.txt), a module that was used to load the metadata from the database (introspector.txt), and a part of the database model (model.xml).

      The database model is a GoLand-specific representation of the database structure. A part is a selection that you right-clicked in the Database tool window (View | Tool Windows | Database).

      The following screenshot shows the example output of these three files.

Locate GoLand log

  • Click Help | Show log in Explorer/Finder. The idea.log file contains recent log information about your IDE performance.

Configure GoLand log settings

To avoid editing the log.xml file itself, GoLand suggests a handy dialog to change logging level for a category. This file resides under the bin directory of GoLand installation.

  1. Click Help | Diagnostic Tools | Debug Log Settings.

  2. In the Custom Debug Log Configuration dialog, type the log categories names, separated with new lines.

Reporting performance issues

  • GoLand is completely frozen and does not respond to any actions? The IDE performance is slower than expected, CPU usage is high, and you suspect a memory leak? To resolve your issue, JetBrains might need a memory snapshot, profiler information, or a thread dump.

    For more information about troubleshooting these issues, read Reporting performance problems.
