Analyzing External Stacktraces

On this page:


You might want to analyze exceptions received by someone else, for example, QA engineers, or investigate a deadlock, or a hang-problem. Unlike the exceptions that you get in the debug mode or when running unit tests, these exceptions do not have links that help you navigate to the corresponding locations in the source code.

With PyCharm, you can simply copy an exception or full thread dump, paste it to the Stacktrace Analyzer, explore information, and navigate to the corresponding source code.

Analyzing external stacktrace

To analyze an external stack trace or thread dump

  1. On the main menu, choose Tools | Analyze Stacktrace.
  2. In the Analyze Stacktrace dialog box that opens, paste the external stack trace or thread dump into the Put a thread dump here: text area.
  3. Click OK. The stacktrace is displayed in the Run tool window.
