Git Commit hang with Perform SonarLint analysis

  • Java: JetBrains s.r.o. 17.0.5

If i want to perform a git commit the commit hang in a “Committing …” if “Perform SonarLint analysis” is selected. Without the selection everything works fine.


Hello @hsh,

Thanks for reporting this problem here :slight_smile:

Could you please extract a thread dump when the UI is hanging and send it to us ? It will help us debug the problem.



I have the same problem on Mac OSX - if this adds an extra facet to the problem, I will gladly be of help as well, if I can.

Hello Zeebo!

Thanks for joining this thread. Could you try to follow the instructions in the previous post and send us thread dumps ?

sorry for my late reply. Time is money and i have to do my work first.
Ok, when i started my intellij i got 2 Java processes. One for “RemoteMavenServer36” and one unamed (?).

C:\Program Files\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 2021.2\jbr\bin>jps -mlV
1892 org.jetbrains.idea.maven.server.RemoteMavenServer36

with full parameters:

Therefor i make a dump of both processes (dump-1892.txt and dump-17936.txt) for you while intellij hang in the “committing…” dialog.

dump-17936.txt (131.9 KB)


today i update my SonarLint plugin to and now it’s working as it should.

Thanks for the correction (even if it wasn’t reported here).

Hi Henning,

Thanks for updating the thread. It was not reported because we did not do anything :sweat_smile:

Did you update IntelliJ in the meantime ? Could you try to keep an eye on the problem and see if it reappears, and under which circumstances ? Thanks

I’m a bit confused.
After the update this morning everything went great but now after I restarted the Intellij the old effect is back and the program hangs again. :frowning:

I always try to keep everything up to date.

Have been running into this issue off and on lately, usually cancelling the commit and retrying resolved it. Today I however am consistently running into the issue and retrying does not help. I have to disable the “Perform SonarLint analysis” checkbox to continue.

Manually performing an analysis on VCS changed files works fine.

Hello @Saberos and others,

I finally took the time to have a look at this. I am able to reproduce the problem, and created this ticket. In short there was a regression recently in IntelliJ, in a case that is avoidable since we use an API in a strange way. I’m working on a fix right now, that should be released next week.

Thanks again for raising this issue and using SonarLint!

i’m just update SonarLint plugin to and everything works fine now. :+1:

Thanks for the fix.
