Faster CVS Operations would be Better

Hello there,

I've compared IntelliJ CVS operation speed with NetBeans' and Eclipse's speed. The result is surprised me because IntelliJ's CVS operation speed is very slow. I've ticked "use gzip compression", nothing differs. I'm using IntelliJ in 3 different project and 3 different environment. I've removed IntelliJ's folder from my antivirus solutions check list but, again nothing differs.

Actually, i think the problem with IntelliJ occurs while IntelliJ tries to connect to the CVS servers. I've looked up and seen that; sending CVS commands to the servers is taking time. Because after sending commands, files are downloading/uploading very fast.

I've seen that my colleagues are facing the same problem. Anyway, CVS is a common sense in development. So i think that, it should be very fast, because other IDEs are very fast in same environment. IntelliJ is the most beautiful Integrated Development Environment i've ever seen. I'll be very appreciate if this impovement will be done.

By the way, currently i'm using IntelliJ's EAP 6133.

Hi Isa,

Make sure you're not encountering the 'reverse-dns issue' - depending on
the cvs server you're using it may try to do a reverse lookup using the
address of the client machine, and if your dns isn't configured properly
this will cause a 5 second delay to every command while the server
attempts the lookup and fails.

We had this issue, and once we resolved it cvs operations became
virtually instantaneous, even over a remote link.

HTH,

Hi Nathan,

How can i learn my cvs server is using reverse-dns? Because, generally we just install cvs over windows server/linux server without any special configuration?

Or where can i find detailed information about this topic?

Thank you!

By the way, what do you think about Eclipse or Netbeans? Because they are running with CVS without any performance problem?
