What is gradle daemon in Android Studio?

If you are doing a single build, you can pass the daemon argument to your gradle command or Gradle Wrapper script. The Daemon will keep the Gradle Framework initialized and running, and will cache project data in memory to improve performance.

When import a Gradle project in Android Studio you may face the below error?


Unable to start the daemon process.
This problem might be caused by incorrect configuration of the daemon.
For example, an unrecognized JVM option is used.
Please refer to the user guide chapter on the daemon at http://gradle.org/docs/1.8/userguide/gradle_daemon.html

I’m personally facing this problem and I will fix Solution for this problem. Basically, when you update android studio and others Plugins   and import lot of  project in the android studio to use a separate version of Gradle build.

Sometimes You just open too many applications in Windows and make the Gradle have no enough memory to start the daemon process. So you may face this type of problem.
