We have recently starting using IDEA, and finding that we are having performance issues using it with CVS. We don't seem to have issues when we use Eclipse to interact with our CVS repositories, just IDEA.
We would like to try and figure out how to determine where the performance issues truly are, and then see how we can mitigate them.
We are using the following:
- CVSNT as our Server piece - runs on a Windows box, 2000 or 2003 ( need to check on that )
- developers are all on Windows 2000
- using IDEA 8.1
Do people have tips on setting up a suitable environment using IDEA, CVS and Windows? Are there things we can look at to see what we can do to improve performance, i.e. better CVS Server implementation, CVS Server configuration, etc.
Or does IDEA and CVS just totally suck?
