extreme slow "refreshing external folders" [message #529774] Tue, 27 April 2010 07:54 Go to next message

we're using RAD75, IBM's IDE build upon Eclipse 3.4.2
Ever since we moved to this version, several of our developers have reported excruciating slow refreshing issues. For who knows what reason, the IDE starts "refreshing external folders" and just hangs for about 10 to 15 minutes!
The source-code loaded into the workspace is imported from a directory that is under version control, and is not located within the workspace.

Does anybody have similar experience, or better, a solution?
maybe some settings...?

Mark,

It sounds like a network delay issue. Do they have the workspace auto
refresh preference enabled?

It seems to me that a proper version control system would involve
extracting a local copy from the version control system, rather than
sharing a folder across developers...

The auto-refresh is (mostly) "on"

We are using "snapshots", local copies of the source-code.
The developer manually triggers the update of this snapshot to update his copy with the newly checked in code from the others.
The location of this snapshot is in a specific directory on the developer's pc, but not within the RAD workspace-directory, hence the "external folders"
The thing is that RAD randomly (?) decides to update his internal index and on some pc's this process hangs RAD...
Rather weird taking into account that the "auto-refresh" and the "refresh workspace on startup" already should have captured all changes made by the user...

Mark,

If it's an external file system there might be issues with clock
synchronization that make the files look out of date with respect to the
expected timestamp on the local machine. It sounds a little like that.
You might want to try disabling auto refresh and see if that helps.
