Eclipse CVS Checkout speed

I don't know how eclipse checks out from cvs so fast on windows. Its orders of magnitude faster than IDEA and the standard CVS.exe.

i was curious if anyone knew why? i know this is not an eclipse forum, but our team is now using eclipse to do CVS checkouts - so in that regard, i think its relevant. i.e. a portion of our team is moving to eclipse for performance reasons (less indexing, faster maven integration, faster cvs, no UI locking, few modal dialogs).

a 15 min checkout in IDEA or cvs.exe on windows takes 3 minutes in Eclipse. the Linux cvs client also takes 3 minutes.

Our entire development team just switched from Eclipse to IntelliJ. Our only serious complaint is the CVS update latency. It takes up to 10 minutes on dual quad-core Xeon workstations maxed out in every way to synchronize ("update") a module/project. I switch to Eclipse and the exact same action takes 15 seconds. That is a huge difference. The latency is killing our team's productivity. Yes, GZIP compression is on. It improves nothing.

My theory: IntelliJ sends all changed files to the CVS server to perform a diff. Eclipse pulls copies of any changed files and performs a local diff. Maybe CVS server speed, network upload latency, workstation speed, etc. then play a part. If this is in any way accurate, choosing local vs remote diffing should be an IntelliJ option out of the box.

Any activity on this thread, an answer, suggested third-party plugin, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Agreed - this is a serious dent to productivity. When any CVS operation occurs, IDEA is pretty much unusable for the duration, and CVS updates and synchronization seem to take forever.

ved Dallas Cowboys tickets but he yet to really make his mark on the team Granted he inherited a mess but he led the team to one playoff game and there no guarantee theyll even qualify for the postseason this season Drew Bledsoe Bledsoe is far from a legendary quarterback but he always been a good sound signal caller especially under Parcells http://www.shoesmum.com http://www.shoesmum.com who drafted him in However his age is starting to show http://www.shoesmum.com and his lack of mobility is even more defined now than it has been over the course of his career He been shaky at best so far this season and it quite clear that he is not holding up well in the face of a pass rush H http://www.shoesmum.com http://www.hairhey.com

I've previously noticed this with SVN as well.
Somehow, eclipse checks out (and also updates) faster.

I think what happened was a spammer replied to an old thread, an

admin removed it, but it still left the thread at the top of the forum and I didn't notice the date!

still, the cpu snapshot might solve our problem.
