  • Build 463: UI is not well responding while background compare is running

    I have some problems comparing large directory structures using rule-based comparison. I my case there are about ~6.000 files on each side in a Subversion workdir env (16.200 files, 6.500 folders when counting excluded .svn folders). When the background scanning/comparing begins, I can not click any icon on the toolbars because the UI hangs for a while... I can't even click the stop button.

    BC2 had no issues with that. I've used BC2 for several years now and I have never problems with hanging UIs... even on stale NFS mounts, the UI of BC2 was always accessible.

    This will be fixed in the next release.

        The release version on my box does the same thing.. BC3 is currently unusable because of the nonresponsiveness. I've tried different settings as I am able with no avail. Going back to BC2 until this is resolved.
        Left side = 4209 files, 316 folders, right side = 21272 files, 1211 folders.
        On Win XP SP2, where most of the files on left and right side are hardlinks.

        EDIT: After fiddling a little more, I found that once I got rid of source control associations, the folder compares are working with good response. What I don't understand is why folder compare is trying to connect to my source control when I didn't ask for version compares.

          What version control system were you using with BC3?

          Also, when you associate a folder with version control, BC3 checks for status information (checked-in, checked-out, etc) every time you load a folder.
