[Aurora] Tuning system for better performance. Please wait...

So I started Aurora for the first time. When it says "Tuning the system
for better performance. Please wait..", what is it doing? It took about
seven minutes on my system to complete this task, and it looked like it
scanned all my source directories, including the source directories for
libraries and the JDK. I'm trying to manage disk space, so I'm curious if
it's creating new huge caches under my user profile or something that I
should be looking at and managing.

Thanks,
Paul

The performance of the initial scan will be improved (it won't scan library
sources and there will be other optimizations). For now it's how it is.

You may explore IDEA system directory and find out what kind of data takes
much of space.

Local VCS seems always enabled regardless my settings...

I see the same problem. I'm unable to get rid of local CVS. Also, it takes a long time to do this tuning. FYI, I'm using a dual-CPU (2GHz each with 1G RAM). This started with the latest builds (802?). Is there anyway we can turn these two off. Thanks

It looks like Aurora is heading Microsoft's "sit back and relax" approach. :)
Of course M$ is designing software for end users who basicly don't care and don't need to care about what's happening.
The users of Idea are developers who are curious about it.
They like to feel that they are in control of their working environment, when IDE is compiling, when it's updating it's caches and so on.
So a little more explanatory information would be appreciated, at least in the docs.

What else do you need to know? The dialog box is saying 'Scanning file...' and at the end 'Building indices'. So it is pretty obvious what's going on. It is scanning all files for e.g. class names, in order to provide you very quickly with the appropriate information. When you enter a class name not yet used in your current class, then a popup is shown suggesting you the correct import of the class containing this new class name. Did you ever wonder why this happens so incredibly quick? It's because they are tuning the system for better performance...

It's just tuning for better performance.....no problem of huge caches
