NPM Version NPM Downloads Travis CI Build Test Coverage Code Climate Deps Dev Deps

A modern implementation of long stack traces for Node.js based-on longjohn and superstack.

Features

  • Written in ES2015
  • Support for Node.js 4 and newer
  • Support for source maps
  • Support for EventEmitters
  • Support for Promises
  • Configurable stack limit and empty frame token
  • Returns active handles (timers, servers, socket connections, child processes, etc)
    • For setTimeout() or setInterval(), double-stack adds the stack to the timer object

Installation

npm install double-stack

Usage

If you just want long stack traces:

import 'double-stack';
// or require('double-stack');

If you want to change options or get active handles:

import * as ds from 'double-stack';
 
ds.options.asyncTraceLimit = 5;
 
const handles = ds.getActiveHandles();

Options

ds.options.asyncTraceLimit (Number)

A positive integer that is greater than or equal to zero. Defaults to 10.

ds.options.emptyFrame (String)

A string to print representing an empty frame in the stack. Defaults to - x 50.

getActiveHandles()

Returns an object containing arrays of various handle types including: timers, sockets, servers, childProcesses, and other.

import * as ds from 'double-stack';
 
setTimeout(() => {}, 1000);
 
const handles = ds.getActiveHandles();
handles.timers.forEach(timer => {
    console.log(timer);
 
    // you can also do a clearTimeout(timer)
});

Production Use

According to the longjohn readme:

Longjohn collects a large amount of data in order to provide useful stack traces. While it is very helpful in development and testing environments, it is not recommended to use longjohn in production. The data collection puts a lot of strain on V8's garbage collector and can greatly slow down heavily-loaded applications.

Since double-stack is basically the same as longjohn, then the same is true for double-stack. With that said, I've been using longjohn in production command line tools for years without any issues. However, it's probably a completely different story when running a server such as an Express.js app.
