Configuring Solution-Wide Analysis

The main calculations of the solution-wide analysis are performed when you first enable this option. Depending on the size of your solution, they may take from several seconds up to dozens of minutes. You will still be able to keep working, but some performance degradation is possible.

Once these global time-consuming calculations are finished, only necessary incremental analysis will be performed according to modifications.

When enabled, solution-wide analysis might also extensively use memory. If you notice that your system resources suffer too much, you can do one of the following:

If you turn off the solution-wide analysis and then decide to turn it on again, ReSharper will have to repeat some initial calculations, which may be time-consuming. To avoid this, you can pause and resume the solution-wide analysis instead.

To pause and resume solution-wide analysis

  • On the toolbar of the Errors in Solution Window, click Pause Analysis Reference__Windows__Errors_in_Solution__Pause_Analysis or Continue Analysis Reference__Windows__Errors_in_Solution__Continue_Analysis.
  • Right-click on the circle indicator in the right corner of the status bar and then choose Pause Analysis or Continue Analysis in the context menu.

The progress of initial calculations of the solution-wide analysis can be displayed in two ways:

  • as a progress bar next to the circle indicator in the right corner of the status bar
  • as a round clock-like progress within this circle indicator.
Also, you can choose whether to display the number of errors in this area or not.

To customize the way solution-wide analysis controls are displayed in the status bar

  1. Right-click the circle indicator in the right corner of the status bar and choose Customize.
  2. In the Customize Solution-Wide Analysis Indicator dialog box that appears, click Bar or Round to choose the corresponding appearance of the initial progress. It will apply the next time you reanalyze errors in your solution,
  3. You can clear the Display errors count check box to hide the small area in the status bar where the number of error-containing solution files is displayed.
