Just recently i updated from SourceTree 2.6 to 3.0.8. The update itself went smoothly and my configurations are intact. However i noticed that SourceTree now aggresivelly pool open repositories by spawning a lot of `git status` process in the background. i also noticed, that whenever it reaches certain CPU usages or Hard Disk, it will close some tab to 'intelligently' reduce the loads.
Unfortunately, i always works with around 12-20 tabs open at the same time as necessity dictates me to. Since my upgrade to 3.0.8 it closes the tabs and only left around 6 and sometimes only left 3. Is there any way to change the new behavior?
I noticed we only have the options whether to allow SourceTree to "Refresh when application is not in focus" or "Check default remotes for updates every x minutes". I kept the default settings where the checks when the window inactive is unchecked and the remote check stays 10 minutes. Surprisingly, i always see SourceTree checks more than once in one minute and it always recheck every tabs whenever i focus to the window -- or even just switching tab.
It just a pain to have these processes too heavy to do actual works.
So, to reiterate my concerns:
The processes are, I believe, hanging because they are triggering credential requests which are holding the processes open.
This is partly down to issues in the Git Credential Manager bundled with Git for Windows, we are working on improving this behaviour, but also try installing Git 2.19.0 and switching to it in the Tools/Options/Git tab
