Ever since I upgraded to the new SourceTree (2.x) I've been having a slow user experience with the application: if I press F5 to refress the repository, it takes 20 seconds to show the commits list, then 1 minute to properly populate the commit details view and the diff view.
When I choose to pull/push, all the UI bogs down and it takes a while for the dialog to pop up. I usually resort to using git through the command line as it is a lot more responsive, but SourceTree is nice.
I wonder what are the tools available for me to diagnose what's going on? Is there a trace level log I can enable, or something along those lines?
Same here. Ever since upgrading to 126.96.36.199 it is horribly slow when open submodules, another repo, clicking on a commit, and, and and...
It's not all the time. It works fine for a while and then it gets horribly slow.
I tried a number of things, like making sure not to use symlinks for repos, turned of spell check (that was a problem in 1.9.x), and switched to embedded Git (as opposed to System Git, (Tools, Options, Git)) and nothing helped. At this point SourceTree is becoming useless (I have used it for years). I installed GitKraken, SmartGit, and neither have any performance problems with the exact same repos.
On Windows 10 x64 with SourceTree v188.8.131.52 I the app was slow for me too. Would take 3-5 seconds or more for SourceTree to scan and detect file changes even in small repos with only a hundred text files of 300 lines or less each. Trying to open another bookmarked repo would sometimes freeze the app entirely.
I then noticed that the embedded Git version was out of date so I updated it and after restarting SourceTree now everything is snappy again.
Coincidence or perhaps related to this conversation, worth a shot to make sure not only is SourceTree current but the embedded Git is current too.
Tools > Options > Git
I found 184.108.40.206 ok, but when I recently upgraded to 220.127.116.11, it became very slow. I have one large repository with years of checkins. Even after the Log/History tab had loaded, the newer version would keep my laptop fan running audibly.
I uninstalled 2.1.11 , and went back to 18.104.22.168, and found my laptop to be mostly silent again.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
