Performance in 6.0

Resharper 6.0 is giving me fits with performance issues in one particular project.

This is a mixed VB and C# solution. One large ASP.NET web site in VB.NET, several supporting DLLs in C#. About 1200 source files all told.

It seems like every operation I perform, whether it modifies anything or not, triggers a 10-20 second "Processing source files..." operation in Resharper. For example, I got back from lunch just a moment ago, went to my already-open Visual Studio, and hit Ctrl+F to "Find". Immediately, the "Processing source files..." status appears in the bottom right of the screen and stayed active for about 15 seconds. Whenever it's doing that, I can barely get any work done because navigating through the code is so slow.

It seems to do this in several situations where no code has actually been modified. For example, i've seen it happen just switching windows or navigating through Solution Explorer.

I've tried disabling my anti-virus software, but it didn't seem to help anything.

Any tips on how to make this better would be appreciated.

Hello Bryan,

This is a known problem and it will be fixed in the upcoming ReSharper 6.1.
The Early Access Program for this version will start soon. Thank you!

Thanks, Andrey. Can we say, plus or minus 15 days, when "soon" is? :)

Is there any news on the 6.1 EAP. Im testdriving Resharper for use, but at this moment it is not working. The performance is horrible and
there has to be a memory leak somewhere. Since I have resharper installed I get out of memory os warnings (running with no swap on 8Gb memory
due to ssd disks) This is something that happens never to me before and it is annoying the shit out of me.

I really need a better product or I need to look for alternatives..

Hello Patrick,

ReSharper 6.1 EAP will start as soon as it is ready, and we're working really
hard to release the first build as soon as possible. Meanwhile, could you
please elaborate more on the problems you're experiencing: which activities
are slow (such as typing, building, opening/closing files etc) and how slow
they are compared to Visual Studio without ReSharper? Are you working on
a web application project? Do you see the 'Processing source files' message
frequently? This information will help us to make sure that the problems
you're observing will get fixed in v6.1. Thank you!

Hi Andrey

VS2010 became slow with starting and loading projects. Furthermore navigation in the solution explorer becomes slow when multiple files are open. Im working on a webproject with some classprojects for the domain/models. Ill trie to see if I get a lot of processing messages.
My biggest issue is the memory problems and running out of memory during work (that force me to quit vs).

The out of memory is a huge problem. I am losing a lot of time with it.
Every time I update my working copy I get a OutOfMemory exception and then need to restart Visual Studio, then wait 5-10 minutes till ReSharper is done analyzing files...
I also need to restart Visual Studio every ~2 hours as a result of the OutOfMemory exception
(Running on a 32bit OS with 4Gb RAM)

I hope the 6.1 comes out very soon...

I agree, I get a lot of out of memory exceptions when trying to build a
large solution on a 32-bit operating system with 3.5 GB RAM installed. I
usually get the out of memory exceptions during a build and it can be
somewhat randomish. Sometimes I can make changes and build a dozen times or
so before I get an out of memory exception. Other times, it happens on the
second build with a relatively minor code change. I don't use solution-wide
analysis.

I don't think I've ever gotten an out of memory exception when developing on
a 64-bit operating system.

Hello,

This is a known problem on 32-bit operating systems, but yet we haven't found
a way to avoid OOM exceptions. Some of our users have reported that using
a /3GB switch fixes this problem on their machines. Thank you!

+1 on a rapid 6.0 patch or 6.1 EAP for the performance issues with 6.0

Like many, i'ts becomming so detrimental to productivity that switching back to 5.x is the only real option.
Heres hoping 6.1 will be the much needed release we hope for.
