While coding the other day, Eclipse was running like shit. It was slow as hell. I couldn’t get anything done. I did all of the updates to Eclipse and even rebooted. It didn’t it help, it was dog ass slow.
Checking my laptop resources, it was all fine. Researching this issue, I found out about a setting to suspend validators in Eclipse.
You can find the setting under preferences and Validation. You should see a checkbox to “Suspend all validators.” Once I did that, Eclipse was back to its normal self. Since upgrading to Oxygen, I’ve had a lot of issues that I didn’t use to have. I don’t think I need the validators on, so it doesn’t matter to me if they’re suspended.
