Watching the file system in Gradle
The reasoning is simple: improve build speed by reusing computations from previous builds
To get a list of running Gradle Daemons and their statuses use the --status command.
PID VERSION STATUS 28411 3.0 IDLE 34247 3.0 BUSY
You can disable the long-lived Gradle daemon via the
--no-daemon command-line option
, or by adding
to your gradle.properties file
If you want to explicitly stop running Daemon processes for any reason, just use the
command gradle --stop.
Via environment variables:
add the flag -Dorg.gradle.daemon=false
to the GRADLE_OPTS environment variable
Via properties file:
to the «GRADLE_USER_HOME»/gradle.properties file
On Windows, this command will disable the Daemon for the current user:
(if not exist "%USERPROFILE%/.gradle" mkdir "%USERPROFILE%/.gradle") && (echo. >> "%USERPROFILE%/.gradle/gradle.properties" && echo org.gradle.daemon=false >> "%USERPROFILE%/.gradle/gradle.properties")
On UNIX-like operating systems, the following Bash shell command will disable the Daemon for the current user:
mkdir -p ~/.gradle && echo "org.gradle.daemon=false" >> ~/.gradle/gradle.properties
Once the Daemon is disabled for a build environment in this way, a Gradle Daemon will not be started unless explicitly requested using the --daemon option.
If the requested build environment does not specify a maximum heap size, the Daemon will use up to 512MB of heap. It will use the JVM’s default minimum heap size. 512MB is more than enough for most builds.
Daemon process before this, you can either kill the process via your operating system or run the
To force Gradle to keep information about unsupported file systems between builds, the feature must be enabled explicitly by one of these methods:
Run with --watch-fs on the command line
This forces watching the file system for this build only.
in your gradle.properties
This forces watching the file system for all builds, unless explicitly disabled with --no-watch-fs.
