Summary0000909: Cannot get profiler output
DescriptionI cannot for the life of me get profiler output.

PHP is 5.4.9 (*not* 5.4.4, *please* keep the version choice up to date) and Xdebug config is:

Version 2.2.1
IDE Key no value

xdebug.auto_trace Off Off
xdebug.cli_color 0 0
xdebug.collect_assignments Off Off
xdebug.collect_includes On On
xdebug.collect_params 0 0

xdebug.dump_globals On On
xdebug.dump_once On On
xdebug.dump_undefined Off Off
xdebug.extended_info On On
xdebug.file_link_format no value no value

xdebug.max_nesting_level 100 100
xdebug.overload_var_dump On On
xdebug.profiler_aggregate Off Off

xdebug.scream Off Off
xdebug.show_exception_trace Off Off
xdebug.show_local_vars Off Off
xdebug.show_mem_delta Off Off
xdebug.trace_enable_trigger Off Off
xdebug.trace_format 0 0
xdebug.trace_options 0 0
xdebug.trace_output_dir /tmp /tmp
xdebug.trace_output_name trace.%c trace.%c
xdebug.var_display_max_children 128 128
xdebug.var_display_max_data 4096 4096
xdebug.var_display_max_depth 3 3

The output dir /tmp is drwxrwxrwt, and df reports that the tmpfs is nowhere near full. The function xdebug_get_profiler_filename() returns the expected "/tmp/cachegrind.out.14669" when the trigger is used. That file however does *not* get written.

Nothing suspicious in Apache logs, and yes, breakpoints do work.
TagsNo tags attached.

PHP Version5.4.4

Additional observation: if I change profiler_output_dir to *anything* other than /tmp, then xdebug_get_profiler_filename() starts returning false.

Things tried so far that did NOT help:

* upgrading PHP to 5.4.10
* downgrading Xdebug to 2.2.0

How many tickets filed by "support agreement" users are there in the queue in front of this ticket right now?

The "support agreement" users are not different from normal users. Remember, this is all a Open Source project run in my free time. You can't require me to look at anything, or even expect to do any work. All tickets will be looked at at some point, in order of my preference. However, I don't have an unlimited amount of free, especially over my well deserved holiday period.

I am not "requiring" you anything, I was just trying to learn what my chances were :)

Meanwhile the issue is resolved. The profiler output does appear, just not where I expected it. Was just systemd's PrivateTmp magic. Google tells me it confuses bloody hell out of people and daemons alike.

Just looking at this again, and found as well, and then saw that you asked how to figure out what PrivateTmp was enabled or not! I was looking at weather I could show that in Xdebug's output info.

No feedback, and, this is not really an Xdebug problem anyway.
