crash when using QThreadPool + QRunnable in plugin

no GUI updating function is executed in QRunnable. QRunnable writes data to local file, create a QgsVectorLayer, getFeatures, fields, addFeatures, addAttributes (fields) to QgsVectorLayer/QgsDataProvider. When editing, QMutex and QMutexLocker is used.

tasks assigned to QThreadPool has finished sucessfully, QThreadPool.activeThreadCount() returns 0

After tasks finished around 30-60 sec, QGIS crash

#1 Updated by Min Min almost 6 years ago

Error caused by reading feature from a QgsVectorLayer in a QThread. As QgsVectorLayer use QgsConnectionPool for fetching feature, and QgsConnectionPool is singleton and always run in main thread (not thread-safe)

timerEvent in Stack Trace is caused by this connection pool. Whether this is a bug, or by design is unclear.

#2 Updated by Nyall Dawson almost 6 years ago

It's not safe to fetch features directly from a thread - you need to first obtain the feature iterator in the main thread, and then interested over the features in the spawned thread.

  • Status changed from Open to Closed

getting feature iterator in main thread and getFeatures in spawned thread works without crash.
problem resolved !
