IntelliJ 8.0 de-indexing slowness

All,

I just installed version 8 today. I had to Force Quit (on OS X) it twice. What seems to be happening is that if by any chance, you remove a directory (e.g. from the Finder) containing a lot of data indexed by IntelliJ, de-indexing them takes forever (it seems to take seconds for each file). This also happens in the foreground, so effectively you are stuck and can't continue working.

Is this a known issue? Is there a way around it?

Thanks,

-Erik

Hello Erik,

I just installed version 8 today. I had to Force Quit (on OS X) it
twice. What seems to be happening is that if by any chance, you remove

IntelliJ, de-indexing them takes forever (it seems to take seconds for
each file). This also happens in the foreground, so effectively you
are stuck and can't continue working.

Yes, this is supposed to happen in the foreground, but no, it's not supposed
to take seconds for each file. If you could capture a CPU snapshot of the
process as described in http://support.jetbrains.com/kb/entry.jspa?externalID=192&categoryID=5
and file a JIRA issue with the snapshot attached, this will be a big help
in investigating the problem.

Thanks. Sorry it doesn't seem like I will have the time to get that CPU dump just right now, but I opened an issue ( http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-20804 ) anyway as the problem is easy to reproduce.

"De-indexing" speed has been improved in version 8.1. Please check the EAP build published today.

Eugene,

I can't seem to find this build. It's not under http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/IDEADEV/Diana+EAP, right?

We'll actually release a EAP build tomorrow - we've found some critical problems
with today's build.
