I am using CLion on my work machine, which is remote.
- I login to the work machine through VNC-like interface.
- The IDE is installed on a network disk, so it is not local to the remote machine.
- The projects are also on network disks.
For most part the setup works fine, but the constant indexing and memory hogging is annoying. I don't understand why the IDE keeps indexing when nothing in the project has changed since the last time I opened it in the IDE. The only parts that change are in the files currently open in the IDE. I understand that the project on network disks is not ideal environment, but that is not something I can change. Is there a configuration in CLion that will avoid constant indexing when there is no modification.
I use PyCharm too with a similar setup, but mostly for Jupyter scripting and there is not much indexing, so it is a breeze to use.
Let me know if you need additional info.
