To run Komodo in debug mode and help developer troubleshoot issues found at client end systems, please follow these steps:
NOTE: These steps are including notary node references in komodod command, but in case you are not a notary node, you don’t need to include those command parameters.
Prerequisite is to install gdb¶
sudo apt-get install gdb
Run Komodo daemon with
Whichever komodod command you are running which results in crashing or problematic behavior run it with
gdb -args ./src/komodod -gen -genproclimit=2 -notary -pubkey="03af2412ebf9517a43d192193490476fd0a44312c70755e07eb03b6d71338ebc9d"
If you have trouble getting it started, try using the full path to the executable.
The above command initialize debugging.
Once you see
gdb> command prompt type
run to start komodo in debug mode.
Getting backtrace data¶
Then when it crashes you’ll again see
gdb> prompt, and some message from komodod daemon itself left some output in gdb before
backtrace and and it will show further very important info that you need to pass to Komodo developers. Post whatever output you get from
backtrace command to help troubleshoot issues.
