[DISCUSSION]How to fix Jack server failing to build with error "Try jack-diagnose"

Did you got this error while building with Jack?
Code:
[ X% Y/Z] Building with Jack: /home/minealex2244/los/out/target/common/obj/JAVA_LIBRARIES/framework_intermediates/with-local/classes.dex
FAILED: /bin/bash /home/minealex2244/los/out/target/common/obj/JAVA_LIBRARIES/framework_intermediates/with-local/classes.dex.rsp
Communication error with Jack server (52). Try 'jack-diagnose'
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.
make: *** [ninja_wrapper] Error 1
It looks like the installation of Jack server is broken. So how do we fix it?

1. Open a terminal window
2. Type the following commands:
Code:
jack-admin kill-server
jack-admin uninstall-server
cd prebuilts/sdk/tools
touch jack
mm -j32 showcommands &> mm.out
./jack-admin install-server jack-launcher.jar jack-server-4.8.ALPHA.jar
3. Now the build should work.
Note: Sometimes it will continue to fail, just be persistent ("make" command again). In my case it is running somehow out of memory and that's why I'm persistent.
Note2: By increasing the RAM memory you will get better results. I see that Jack server is running out of memory at some point.
Note3: It is possible to reduce the number of concurrent services in file $HOME/.jack-server/config.properties
Code:
jack.server.max-service=N
where "N" is a number (default: 4).
Note4: Try creating a swap file of 20-40 GB as Jack uses a lot of RAM (https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=73083910&postcount=4).

It depends on how fast the USB drive is.
My USB ports are too slow for that, however I did find a speed boost by taking an old smaller sata hard drive and mounting it as the /out folder. So it mainly reads from one drive while writing to the other which helps with overall read/write latency. I hope this information helps someone else.

Does anybody know how to raise the the amount of resources javac uses when compiling? Mine is stuck at "javac -J-Xmx1024M" and I believe that is causing some build errors for me. My cm-14.1 tree is limited to 1024m and my lineage-15.0 tree is limited to 2048m for javac. The variable must be able to be changed somehow if it changes between build trees like that.

I am trying to compile ResurrectionRemix Rom from source. Compilation would not even start.

Communication error with Jack server 51. Try 'jack-diagnose'
I am getting this error. I have tried killing the server and running it again. then getting this error

No Jack server running. Try 'jack-admin start-server'
I checked the logs but nothing is in there. I tried running "jack-diagnose" but it is showing permission denied. Kindly help me. thanks

Did you figure this out? I'm having same problem with the same error message.

before giving the make/lunch/brunch command enter this in terminal.
JACK_SERVER_VM_ARGUMENTS="-Xmx4g -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -XX:+TieredCompilation" /mnt/disk2/du/prebuilts/sdk/tools/jack-admin start-server

if this don't work, increase the value from 4g to 8g or more
replace the /mnt/disk2/du with your project directory.

Also open .jack-server/config.properties in your home.
and edit jack.server.max-service to 1

Hope this will help you.
Thanks

Another reason for Jack Server errors could be that the port server clashes with already started instances of other users in your system.
If you set up a server and admin port based on your uid, your Jack Server should work without issues.

It looks like it's a jack error. I compiled 2 different roms and arrived at the same error. How can I fix it if it's possible?

    Thanks for this post. I had lost the jack server and couldn't find how to get it back. You really saved me bro!
