Performance issues

Hi,
Last several month IDEA, from time to time behaves really slow. Especially it is noticable when switching into IDE from other tasks(for example I takes 10-15 seconds to allow at least open menu item after this, I'm even not trying to edit anything cause it not possible). Anyone noticed something like this?

To get some speed I'd like to try turn off IDEA dumping tread dump in case long running operations cause suspect that it may slowdown app(get JVM full thread dump operation no fast enough, also if it done each second it may be one more cause of such problems). For example I have 23 files with full dumps generated during 30 seconds, which looks really strange as for me.

I'd like to hear feedback of community regarding performance.

Hello Dmitry,

Please send the thread dumps to me at yole@jetbrains.com, so that we could
see what causes the performance problem.

I'm sorry but wiped them to reset dump storage cause it was around 100mb of them and submitting was not possible from IDEA. I'll monitor dumps and will send them if will see so many files generated. After noticing this issue I've watched into some of that dumps and as I understand slowdown was caused by SVN and files synchronization(may be I'm wrong, but anyway don't see any reason why these operations may lock whole UI all the time).

I've had performance problems with all versions of IDEA when VCS operations are occurring - I'm currently using Diana #9939 (because CVS problems with recent Maia builds have made it unusable for me) and when I 'Update Project' via CVS, I have to take a 10 minute tea break until everything has finished, because the GUI keeps freezing up. I guess it's a balance between giving the background processes enough priority to finish in a reasonable time, and giving the GUI some event-handling time. Unfortunately, parts of the processes seem to regularly kill the GUI event handling.

You might have heard this from me before, but I always say it just in
case...
Make sure you don't have the reverse-dns problem with cvs - not sure if
it's the same with other servers, but I know cvsnt needs to be able to
resolve your IP to a name otherwise it will delay every command by ~5 secs.

My computer has a name and an IP address on the company network, but I don't know what the CVS server is or isn't able to do with them - it's on the other side of the Atlantic...
