Rake slowness on NFS

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Charles Comstock, Feb 1, 2006.

  1. Is there any further work going into speeding up the basic startup time
    of rake?

    I have a dreamhost shared account I do some minor development on and
    due to what I assume is NFS issues rake -T takes a minute and 8 seconds
    to complete. Which means an invocation of any rake command takes a
    minimum of that length to complete. I believe this is triggered (as
    previously discussed) due to rake's need to preload a complete file
    dependency tree.

    Is there anyway rake could only load in the file dependencies that
    actually apply? Even on non shared hosts the basic invocation of rake
    takes at least a second, and while this is not particularly slow, it's
    still one of the few commands I run regularly of that nature that has a
    noticeable pause for startup.

    Any suggestions for speedup? Anyone working on this? Anyone else have
    similar complaints? Am I just expecting too much?
