There are a lot of UI interruptions (pauses / hiccups) in the C# source file editor when the Source Analysis feature is active. This typically occurs immediately after editing, and attempting to cursor away from the current line or display intellisense; the cursor or scrolling lags / pauses.
It's not really an official feature yet.
Works on linux/windows, but not on os x atm
A lot of the perf issues with source analysis are because the analysis threads do a lot of allocations, and so in some cases all the threads can spend a lot of time contending for the Boehm GC's global allocation lock.
The sgen GC doesn't have this issue - try running with sgen:
mono --gc=sgen MonoDevelop.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/monodevelop/bin/MonoDevelop.exe --no-redirect
This may crash occasionally on startup or when running nunit tests, but source analysis perf is much better.
Should that work with mono 2.11.2?
Figured out by using your mono launch script, @Michael :)
Thanks for your help, @Michael.
Tried it on version 2.11.2 alpha of the mono runtime, but the pauses with intellisense are still there. If I disable source analysis, no pauses.
I love the feature, but I'll disable it this round and happy to give it another try in future MD updates.
No, maybe 2.12 :(
Should be much better in the 4.x line.
