How to disable 'Analyzing' in TrafficLightRenderer of IntelliJ 2020.3 and newer?


Hi there,

We updated our IntelliJ CE to 2020.3, and looks like `Analyzing` is taking a long time which blocks coloring, buttons, and other more important features of IntelliJ. Is there a way that we can disable it? 

I tried to debug the code but I always get compilation errors. The way I build up IntelliJ is

  • downloaded intellij-community from Github,
  • checked out branch 203 
  • opened in 2019.2 CE
  • tried to run the config from there. 

Then there're always some compilation errors. Please let me know if my approach is problematic. I noticed that the intellij-community/android and intellij-community/android/tools-base don't have branch 203, not sure if this could potentially cause the issue. 

My ultimate goal is to disable the `Analyzing` in TrafficLightRenderer so that our people can work faster. Is there a way that we can work from the plugin side? We do maintain an IntelliJ plugin. The attached image is where our UI gets stuck - notice that the `Analyzing...` sticks on the upper right corner for a very very long time, and progress can be made after the text changes. 

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Please report performance problem diagnostic info as described in link so we can investigate underlying issue causing "Analyzing" to take such long time. Thanks.

Hi Yann, 

it might be hard to provide the full context as we have multiple custom plugins. Is it possible to just disable 'Analyzing' from plugin side? That's all we need.

The point is really, "Analyzing" shouldn't take so much time, so it's absolutely needed to investigate underlying cause - either in platform or in custom plugins. As temporary measure, you can set highlighting level in editor to "Syntax" or "None" via right-click on this status UI.
