HUGE skeletons.zip in PyCharm Pro remote interpreter

Answered

Local:

Ubuntu Disco x64, PyCharm Pro 2019.2

 

Remote:

RasPi 3, Raspian Stretch, Python 2.7.13

/home/pi/.pycharm_helpers/python_stubs/-528484308/skeletons.zip is 8.6GB.

 

Please help me understand what's going on here.

Hi, that's strange. Try to remove pycharm_helpers on the remote machine, does PyCharm try to regenerate the same-sized archive? Did you look inside it?

Well, it fixed itself. Go figure.

I ran across this problem a couple of weeks ago—right after PyCharm 2019.2 came out.

I deleted pycharm_helpers on the remote machine, and everything was fine.

Now, my remote machine's disk filled up due to skeletons.zip at 235GB!

I've been doing remote debugging on this machine, but it looks like something is not getting cleaned up properly.

I will open a bug.

Holy balls, I have just come across this after our compute machines ran out of disk space... I seemed to have left PyCharm open on my laptop all night, and when I returned in the morning my laptop was overheating, PyCharm displayed an error that it had run out of memory and my remote machines .pycharm_helpers/python_stubs directory was 3.7 Terabytes in size!!!

I am facing the same problem. Left PyCharm running over night and ended up with a .pycharm_helpers/python_stubs/1355224018/skeletons.zip which is 700 GB on the remote server. I saw @Jakob already filed the issue. Is the solution to delete the .pycharm_helpers every time it grows and not run experiments for extended periods of time or is there any way to disable creation of .pycharm_helpers on the remote server.

Just experienced this - what the heck. Way to crash a remote machine.

 

web@dev ~$ du -h |grep G

15G .

We are having serious remote server issues due to the skeletons file size. 
It has been quite a long time since this is raised, so we should expect it to be solved soon.
