Intellij IDEA + Git performance = KIS

Once upon a time .. something happened to Intellij IDEA.

Every Git operation was taking a very long time and all I had to do is to wait while staring at it. “Compare with Latest Repository Version” was taking ages to complete. Something was definitely wrong and although I blamed IDEA EAP builds initially, that was not the case.

Other people reported it works fine for them so I started looking for what could be wrong with my setup and found the reason – an antivirus, of course. I run Kaspersky Internet Security and so far never had any issue with it. But this time it had to be tweaked a little to stop interfering with my activities:

Once I configured it to exclude and trust anything related to IDEA, Git, Java, Groovy, Gradle and Maven things came back to normal. I’m sorry, IDEA, for thinking it was you.
