While typing or scrolling or mouse selecting in the IDE editor I get a pause of about 2-3 seconds every minute. This only happens while in the CodeWarrior IDE. Is this normal?
CodeWarrior IDE version 188.8.131.528.
Target is Freescale 56F83xx.
I do not think it should be doing that. Are you using a floating license, by any chance? I would also check the task manager to see if you can catch what application or task displays a spike in CPU usuage.
License is Node Locked. Platform is Windows 2000 (ok, a little behind the times).
I ran a perfmon on every (static) process in my system that I can watch while in Code Warrior. It appears that perfmon pauses at the same time as Code Warrior and no process has any extra processing going (or less processing as would be the case for a lock). If Code Warrior doesn't do this naturally, then I will investigate other possible sources of the problem (starting with networking, my project and all the files are located on a server). For now I use an external editor (vim) and no problem.
this issue might be caused by periodical checking of license by CodeWarrior IDE. I'd suggest you to display the value of variable LM_LICENSE_FILE. (e.g. type "set LM_LICENSE_FILE" in Windows Terminal Window)
If the LM_LICENSE_FILE variable is not empty then CodeWarrior first tries to get the license from the paths stored in this variable. If a path refer to remote directory then it could take few second to check the directory. Therefore I'd suggest you either
completely delete LM_LICENSE_FILE (in case you don't use other tools that are based on FlexLM licensing technology)
paste path to your local CodeWarrior license.dat into LM_LICENSE_FILE as a very first item
