    Hi, I just found out that
    somehow is different for linux and macOS — this is a problem if you use remote build cache populated by some linux-powered CI (as do I) and developers’ machines are Macs. It’s related to #android, but since all impact is about caching — decided to post this info here.

    I'm trying to figure out why cache is missing. As far as I can tell the only difference between the cache-logs are the implementations, and they're both from the same released artifact. I've tried running it on two different linux hosts, with identical JVM and even identical paths, but the cache is still different

    Hello, how do I declare a method that I can use within task execution time with gradle configuration caching enabled? e.g.
    def logOut(String message) {
        println("generate_pluginversionslist - $message")
    afterEvaluate {
        if (project.hasProperty("android")) {
            android {
                if (it.hasProperty("applicationVariants")) {
                    applicationVariants.all { variant ->
                        def buildType =
                        def variantName =
                        def variantNameCapitalize = variantName.capitalize()
                        logOut("register for ${variantName} variant")
                        preBuild.dependsOn tasks.register("writePluginVersionsStrResourceTask${variantNameCapitalize}") {
                            description = "Generate ${outputs.files.singleFile}"
                            doLast {
                                logOut("Started for variantName=$variantName buildType=$buildType")
                                outputs.files.singleFile.withWriter { writer ->
                                    writer.write('<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>\n<resources>\n\n')
                                logOut("Done for variantName=$variantName buildType=$buildType")
                        clean {
                            delete project.file("build/generated/res/c24/$buildType/values/$customGeneratedFileName")
    it stops working when enabling configuration caching and rebuilding in
    # <>
    after rebuilding it shows this error every time where it states it suddenly can’t find the logOut method any more
    What went wrong:
    Execution failed for task ':app:writePluginVersionsStrResourceTaskDebug'.
    > Could not find method logOut() for arguments [Started for variantName=debug buildType=debug] on task ':app:writePluginVersionsStrResourceTaskDebug' of type org.gradle.api.DefaultTask.

    I'm seeing negative savings with Build cache enabled on incremental builds due to "packing" taking up to 7% of the total build time (no "unpacking" as those tasks are UP-TO-DATE), but clearly there is a huge improvement in case of clean builds is this expected? any solution for this?

    Hi everyone, I’m trying to run build-cache-node on Ubuntu VM via Docker. But it gets
    several times after running. It was working fine for 3 weeks but today it started to happening. I have tried updating docker image, reinstalling docker but still same exception happening. Do you have any suggestion? (Ubuntu Server 22.04, Docker 20.10.18 Build cache node version: 13.1)

    If a cacheable task is a successor of a non-cacheable predecessor task, does that prevent the successor cacheable task from being cacheable bc it depends on a non-cacheable predecessor task?

    Hi, how do we troubleshot cache misses from the same cache key? So i have first build that stored artifact 9399da9f147952c4565552edec56056a to remote cache (first image). Then i have second build from different machine that have the same cache key, but it missed. I already enabling capturing input task, and comparing both build but it is exactly same and no difference. Any suggestion how do we check why it missed ?

    Can anyone tell me if I’m reading this correctly. I’m debugging why a task is not hitting the remote build cache and I’ve come across this discrepancy in the cache debug output. On my local machine
    Appending input file fingerprints for 'inputArtifact' to build cache key: 3447d06a1cf0b5b0770a5a19c48d6c16 - NAME_ONLY{/Users/justinbreitfeller/.gradle/caches/modules-2/files-2.1/'aapt2-7.3.1-8691043-osx.jar' / 4341034cb2e00bae6db6d9e642ab5c12}
    On my remote machine
    Appending input file fingerprints for 'inputArtifact' to build cache key: 0df6c43612fd0d3d6d0860576053d155 - NAME_ONLY{/home/circleci/.gradle/caches/modules-2/files-2.1/'aapt2-7.3.1-8691043-linux.jar' / 25f9626e6fddbffaa42760fb2c950d38}
    Am I wrong to assume that this NAME_ONLY inputArtifact won’t help cross platform since the JAR files have the platform in its name?

    Is this expected if we make abi changes, then all module depend to it will resulting different cache key ? for example when printing task input it saying that classes.jar is different.

    Is it possible to configure Gradle to push to both local and remote build cache? If I enable both caches and enable pushing to remote cache, Gradle never seems to push to remote cache.

    Hi all - not sure if this is the right place to ask this - but I'm recently getting an error in IntelliJ while building related to gradle caches. The root cause is my company compliance app is blocking a log4j file due to it being flagged as vulnerable, and this file is sitting in the gradle source here: Its odd that I'm only seeing this problem inside intelliJ, and not on the command line, was wondering if anyone had any insight into a workaround for this. I can report this issue in github and hopefully the offending file will be patched but its blocking some of our developers already.
    org.gradle.internal.execution.OutputSnapshotter$OutputFileSnapshottingException: Cannot snapshot output property 'outputDirectory'. Failed to create MD5 hash for file '/Users/spence/.gradle/caches/transforms-3/b857c89a93e3ad26d7a3a2df48b5cb23/transformed/unzipped-distribution/gradle-7.5.1/subprojects/docs/src/snippets/antMigration/fileDeps/kotlin/libs/log4j-1.2.8.jar' as it does not exist.

    Hello! I recently started using Gradle build-cache which significantly improved clean build time (6 times faster). Unfortunately, benchmarking using gradle-profiler pointed out slight regression on incremental builds (~20% slower). Is it intended behavior? I cannot find anything about that on the internet, but from the logical point of view, it makes sense (cache overhead is probably non-zero). I'm also wondering why this flag is not enabled by default, are there any cons to using that?

    Hi! I have another question related to remove build caches. Now that I have it set up, I was looking into the gains for our Android project, and I noticed that on an M1 MacBook I am always getting 0 remote cache hits, whereas on an Intel MacBook I am getting many hits. The CI that pushes to the remote cache is an x86 one, is the different architecture an issue? Are there any workarounds, other than having another CI build in parallel that uses an ARM execution environment?
