I'm a bit concerned about the performance of ECB/Semantic. I'm not entirely
sure which one is causing my slowdown, so I'm mailing both lists.
First, my system specs: Dual Athlon 1800+ MP. 512MB RAM. Running WinXP.
Now, I'm working on a pretty big project with hundreds of source files
(though probably only 20 that I visit on a regular basis.) If I move the
cursor around, everything is pretty quick. No problems. If I pause for a
moment though, the system takes a serious pause, which sometimes takes up
to 3 or 4 seconds. This means that when I'm typing a method or variable
name and have made a mistake and try to backspace, I have a fairly long
pause before I get to see what's happening. When the system becomes
responsive again, I get handy little things in the command buffer saying
what class I've currently got my cursor on, or describing the kind of
construct I'm working in (if, for, while, whatever.) While I'm appreciative
of the extra information, the delay is basically unacceptable. I'd prefer
to not turn such handly little tips off and with my kind of system, it
would seem like I shouldn't have to. However, if I have to, I will.
So, I suppose my actual question is two-fold:
1) Will there be performance upgrades in new versions to deal with this
sort of thing?
2) What sorts of things can I turn off to get a maximal speed improvement?
(I'd like to point out that despite the performance problems, working in
Emacs with ECB and Semantic are far preferable to working in Visual
Studio.NET. All I need now is for intellisense behaviour to work properly!
