RE: [cdt-dev] CDT Build - What does "Updating Project..." actuall y do?


We were used to develop under linux without any IDE. 
We are tyring to integrate IDE to our development. 
Our standard  projets are all made of more than 1000 C/C++ files. 

After a buid command, we are waiting for a while with"Updating Project..."
 And it's quite longer because we are working under the IBM Rational
ClerCase plugin (cms tool).

So, we are looking for a efficient way to work. It's not easy to organize
our project into several projects.
Several projects give some benefits et a lot of disadvantges

Have you some issues to improve the performance of the IDE ?

Objet : [cdt-dev] CDT Build - What does "Updating Project..." actually


Some of our users of the CDT are complaining about poor performance.  Well,
there are many contributors to this, but one in particular is a post-build
delay. After the makefile has been built, the build continues to run for a
while with the "Updating Project..." message.  What is it doing?  With some
of our projects, even if trivial builds, this can take 30 seconds or longer
(granted, there are a lot of files in the project).

For this particular project, there may be 500 C/C++ files, but only a
handful are used for the build.  There are likely thousands of files total.
These files are coming from a linked resource.  It is a standard make

If I can determine what is occuring at this time, I can begin to eliminate
bottlenecks (is it the network, the CM system, etc?).
