Enabling IDEA Server slows down IDE startup to a great extent

I have noticed that enabling IDEA Server and letting it to login on startup slows down the startup time of the IDE to a great extent. I have two computers in my home network and I have a faster (30Mb/s) internet connection. I think it is better to let IDEA startup first and then later login to IDEA Server on a background thread.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Cheers,
Behrang

Hello Behrang,

I have noticed that enabling IDEA Server and letting it to login on
startup slows down the startup time of the IDE to a great extent. I
have two computers in my home network and I have a faster (30Mb/s)
internet connection. I think it is better to let IDEA startup first
and then later login to IDEA Server on a background thread.


This is not possible. IDEA Server loads settings which are required for IDEA
to run, so this has to happen synchronously during the startup process.

What happens when IDEA Server is set to "Do not login" and then after starting up the IDE the user opts to login? Won't it load settings then?

Hello again Dimitry,

According to the IDEA documentation this looks like to be possible:

You can log in to the IDEA Server in various ways

  • During the first IntelliJ IDEA startup through the Login to IDEA Server dialog box.
  • At any time during a session through the Login to IDEA Server dialog box.

Could you please double check this?

Best regards,
Behrang
