If I use the "Go to File" function in a big project (more than 1500 files) AND the files are located on a samba share on
our linux server the performence IS REALLY REALLY BAD !
The Option "Put NetBeans metadata into a seprate directory" is checked so I hoped the samba share isn´t a performence
factor in "Go to File" functions :-(
Go to File goes through the files sequentially, so that's likely why it is so slow. There is no index for files in
metadata, so having userdir on local disk does not help here.
There is still a chance we'll have the index for Go to File implemented for NB 6.7, see issue 122639. That would make
it significantly faster.
Note that in case you are looking for classes, you can use Go to Type (Ctrl+O) which should perform much better.
