DDMS: Sending jdwp tracking request failed!

Postby udos86 » Sat Sep 11, 2010 10:06 pm


I recently switched from XP & Eclipse Galileo to Windows 7 & Eclipse Helios 64bit.

Everything works the same as before with one little exception: Every time I close the emulator the console now shows the following message:

[2010-09-11 22:51:47 - DeviceMonitor]Sending jdwp tracking request failed!

It doesn't really bother me 'cause as I mentioned everything works fine but still I am wondering why this message occurs.

I couldn't find any information on this issue via google so maybe someone of you could explain...

Thank you very much!

The message you receive is in the normal console of Eclipse and isn't really important, because it just reports you that the connection to the emulator was lost. That ok as you described you closed it.

The normal android log is only visible via the adb tool (via console) or with the view in Eclipse called LogCat. You can add that to your working screen if you go to Window -> View -> Other -> Android -> LogCat

I recommend to look at the other views of the android tools, too. Like Device or Explorer.

What might happen with the LogCat output is that it went blank. Than you need to clear the LogCat (there is a button for that on the top of the view) and if this doesn't help try to click on the emulator in the device list. If nothing of that helped: close eclipse and the emulator and start them again.
