Doing VCS refresh

What is "'Doing VCS refresh'  attempting to do when I do a commit under subversion ?

Commits for a single file,  under subversion are taking 15+ seconds to complete.

I can back up the whole repository, 1.4 GB,  in under a minute, and so the server is reasonably fast.

Is there a way to disable 'Doing VCS refresh', or do it in the background ?

Most probably it is finishing initial filesystem tree walking after startup. This is necessary to show what files are changed in the Changes View, which in turn must be up to date for all version control operations. This is only done once per startup.

I know this is an old post, but it's still relevant. I continue to have this happen, and it isn't due to the initial startup. On the first commit, the refresh is very fast, but the second commit will hang for minutes.

@Justin F

The issue you mean is likely a different one - see https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-224516

Make sure to use the latest 2019.3.1, that includes the fix
