#18144 closed enhancement (fixed)

Improve performance when deleting a large number of relations

Reported by: naoliv Owned by: Don-vip
Priority: normal Milestone: 19.09
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: performance relation Cc:


While deleting a lot of relations (1600+ for my case) JOSM freezes without any kind of feedback (can't scroll anything, move the map, click anywhere).

I know that JOSM is still processing them, but it seems to take a lot of time (running for around 15 minutes until now) without any kind of feedback.

Maybe something about this could be improved?

With VisualVM I can see that the hot spots are:

The relation comparator defined in DefaultNameFormatter is very costly and must be called wisely.

Currently, when we delete N relations we call it:
1) N times with a RelationMembersChangedEvent (one time per deleted relation) through RelationListDialog.relationMembersChanged
2) N times with a PrimitiveFlagsChangedEvent (one time per deleted relation) through RelationListDialog.otherDatasetChange

fix #18144 - consolidate events in RelationListDialog

comment:5 Changed 2 months ago by Don-vip

By consolidating events we get only one call with a single DataChangedEvent. You should see the difference :)
