SQL Prompt 5 causing extreme slow down

Sometimes I am waiting for 2 or 3 minutes for just a screen change. I found this in the log:
15 Feb 2011 15:08:50,888 [6] ERROR RedGate.SqlPrompt.Engine.LogService - LogService caught unhandled exception in AppDomain: 'Thread was being aborted.'
System.Threading.ThreadAbortException: Thread was being aborted.
at System.Threading.Thread.SleepInternal(Int32 millisecondsTimeout)
at v.a()
at System.Threading.ThreadHelper.ThreadStart_Context(Object state)
at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.Run(ExecutionContext executionContext, ContextCallback callback, Object state)
at System.Threading.ThreadHelper.ThreadStart()

I have had to turn off SQL Prompt.

Version 5.0.1.7, SQL Server 2005

  • I am also having extremely slow response times after upgrading SQL Prompt 4 to 5. I have to either disable SQL Prompt or close all tabs containing CTEs just to get my cursor to keep up.

    Thanks,

  • I have been watching the log and I discovered an error involving decryption (I didn't have rights to some function involving decrypting).

    So I turned off the option to "Decrypt encrypted objects". This improved the response time some, from SQL Prompt being unuseable to being very annoying.
  • Yes, we did discover after the release of SQL Prompt 5.0 that CTEs do make SQL Prompt perform very slowly. The developers have now produced a fix, which will be included in SQL Prompt 5.1.

    I understand that doing CTE-intensive work is very difficult with the current version, so we've also backported the fix to SQL Prompt 5.0. It hasn’t been fully regression-tested, so we’re only telling people who have told us they’ve experienced this specific issue.

    Please email me at [email protected] if you're having problems with slow CTEs and I'll send you the link.

  • I downloaded the 5.0.2.1 version and used it extensively for a full day. The slow response problem is now gone.

    Because I was not using any CTE in the code I was currently working on, I didn't expect the new version to fix my problem, but it did.

    Thanks for fixing this.

    I have also experienced a dramatic slowdown and seen that error message in the log. I am glad this fix has solved Rick's problems, I will email Paul for the link and hope it solves mine as well.
    Thanks,
