Collect information by using Diagnostic tools

Introspection is the process during which the IDE retrieves information about a database. This information is used to show the objects in the database explorer, display their DDL, suggest them during completion, and in other features for code assistance.

Sometimes introspection runs into problems. For example, it might take much longer time to introspect a database, or some objects that exist in the database do not show up in the Database tool window. In these cases, try to use the following menu items to collect troubleshooting data and pass it on to our support team.

  • Right-click a data source and navigate to Diagnostics. Select between the following options:

    • Dump Model: generates a GoLand-specific representation of the database structure (a database model). You can include automatically generated content by clicking the Include auto-generated content icon.

    • Diagnostic Refresh: reloads the metadata from the database and generates a LOG file. This information might be helpful for the support team when you think that your introspection is slow.

      Diagnostic refresh
    • Prepare Introspector Diagnostics: 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).

      This information might be helpful when introspection works incorrectly. For example, when you see something outdated or do not see new objects.

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

Locate GoLand log

  • Click Help | Show Log in {0}. 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.
