"We've noticed that extension 'ReSharper Ultimate' is slowing Visual Studio" message

In case you get this


and this


or that


We have no idea how MS team counts that number of seconds in VS performance monitor. Sometimes it complains about its Error List  https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/16041/vs-2017-rc-weve-noticed-that-a-tool-window-error-l.html or something else.

If you notice a real performance problem apart from that message, first of all, please try following this guide https://www.jetbrains.com/help/resharper/Speeding_Up_ReSharper.html

If those steps did not help and you still experience the performance problem, please follow https://resharper-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207243205 article to send us a perf snapshot.


I can endure a slow startup, and I can even endure a little bit (NOT a lot) of slow typing. But there seems to be a particular issue at the moment related to slow typing that is worse than just slow typing. Basically, something is wonky with the queuing up of keystrokes and/or maybe the cursor position, such that when you type during the freeze, when it comes back and empties the keystroke queue, the results are in the wrong order, so you can't even type blind.


You know it’s bad, when Visual Studio even complains about the workmanship. And the fact, the proposed remedy is to hide that there is a problem.

Seriously, resharper is too fat, in most of time I have to reopen a project. I hope you have a lighter version because I rather have just searching file capability from resharper than a big fat slow rich features.

Same issues since I can remember


After numerous complaints to jetbrains support, I have decided to suspend R# in most of the development work. I only use it once in a while doing code refactor and cleanup. 


I think there is an issue with long methods. Writing code near the end of a particularly long method (~1000 loc?) causes regular extremely long freezes, sometimes 10-30 seconds or more. You can see the method signature intellisense popup appear blank and in the wrong place (near the top of the screen instead of near the cursor, but who knows if that's related or not.
