I just upgraded from 7.x and noticed that 8.x is exceptionally slow.
Loading project takes at least 5 min.
Why does it reindex jdk and all jars on every load?
Navigation with in the project is slow.
Navigating preferences is slow. I get "Loading" message in intelliJ Setting. Never seen it before
Almost everything I do in 8.x is much slower than 7
winxp pro sp3
3.4GHz with 3GB of RAM
I already disabled most of the plug ins and set vmoptions to the following:
I already excluded intellij dirs from anivirus and google indexing. (was not an issue with 7.x)
Is there anything else i can do to speed it up? I can not upload snapshots. My proxy will block it.
I am sorry to say it, but after 5 years with Intellij i can see how it degraded. It is no more productive than crappy eclipse....
Please do not make me to use eclipse again.
How to improve performance???
