Package goleak is a Goroutine leak detector.


func Find

func Find(options ...Option) error

Find looks for extra goroutines, and returns a descriptive error if any are found.

func VerifyNone

func VerifyNone(t TestingT, options ...Option)

VerifyNone marks the given TestingT as failed if any extra goroutines are found by Find. This is a helper method to make it easier to integrate in tests by doing:

defer VerifyNone(t)

func VerifyTestMain

func VerifyTestMain(m TestingM, options ...Option)

VerifyTestMain can be used in a TestMain function for package tests to verify that there were no goroutine leaks. To use it, your TestMain function should look like:

func TestMain(m *testing.M) {

See for more details.

This will run all tests as per normal, and if they were successful, look for any goroutine leaks and fail the tests if any leaks were found.

type Option

type Option interface {
	// contains filtered or unexported methods

Option lets users specify custom verifications.

func IgnoreTopFunction

func IgnoreTopFunction(f string) Option

IgnoreTopFunction ignores any goroutines where the specified function is at the top of the stack. The function name should be fully qualified, e.g.,

type TestingM

type TestingM interface {
	Run() int

TestingM is the minimal subset of testing.M that we use.

type TestingT

type TestingT interface {

TestingT is the minimal subset of testing.TB that we use.
