QGIS 3 is much less responsive than QGIS 2.18

Description

I have both QGis 3 and 2.18 installed.
Since version 3 UI has become very unresponsive and laggy. Looks like as it freezes a little bit every second.

History

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 2 years ago

  • Status changed from Open to Feedback
  • Subject changed from QGis 3 is much less responsive than QGis 2.18 to QGIS 3 is much less responsive than QGIS 2.18

You observe this regardless of the amount/type of data you have in the project? Can you test with a clean/new profile so we can exclude a bad 3rd party plugin or a legacy configuration? thanks.

#2 Updated by Alexey T almost 2 years ago

Look what I found.
All plugins are disabled.
I have a large group of GeoTIff layers in my project.
When I disable this group everything is OK.
When I enable this group UI becomes laggy even if layer is not in a canvas

The same layer group in QGis 2 doesn't affect UI responsiveness

Can you share the dataset?

#4 Updated by Alexey T almost 2 years ago

I made further investigation
My raster layers are in EPSG:4326

When I set current view to EPSG:3395 or any other CRS, QGis becomes laggy even if there is nothing to draw on the canvas
When I set curent view to EPSG:4326 everything is OK.
This doesn't happen in GQis 2.18
This is somehow related to On The Fly CRS transformations

missing tif files.

#7 Updated by Mathieu Pellerin - nIRV almost 2 years ago

Alexy, which version of QGIS 3 are you referring to? 3.0, 3.2, or a current master build?

First thought that comes to mind as a possible cause for regression: CRS transform context.

#8 Updated by Alexey T almost 2 years ago

Recently this issue was tested in QGIS Desktop 3.2.3 x64
And as far as I remember this happens in some previous versions of 3.x.x

Just tested on master/Linux and can't see any difference when changing between CRSs. Also you tif file do not have any pyramids/overviews, that would improve much your map navigation experience.

#10 Updated by Alexey T almost 2 years ago

In my original project I have pyramids. Didn't include it in this test

I received a notification with this comment

Checked this once again.

I have two files in archive
test.qgz - saved in 3.2
test.qgs - the same saved in 2.18

when I open qgZ with 3.2 UI is laggy
when I open qgS with 3.2 UI is not laggy
---

but the comment is not here on redmine, is the observation correct?

I can't notice any measurable lag when opening the QGZ version of your project (on Linux here).

No, this is not correct.

Alexey, are your files stored locally or on a network share?

#14 Updated by Alexey T over 1 year ago

No, the files are stored in the same folder as the project on local HDD

#15 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 1 year ago

  • Status changed from Feedback to Open

#16 Updated by Alexey T over 1 year ago

Today I figured out that QGIS uses 13% of my CPU for some time (10 or 15 secs) after canvas movement or layer rearrangement. Aa I have 8 cores, it means that it uses 100% of one core.
This is the cause of system lags.
Not only QGIs is laggy but all other applications.

Is there some logs or debug messages to see what QGIS is doing?

#17 Updated by Nyall Dawson over 1 year ago

  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

Alexey - download DebugView from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/debugview and launch, then launch QGIS and open your project. See if there's anything interesting printed to the debugview logs.

#18 Updated by Alexey T over 1 year ago

No there is nothing in logs

#19 Updated by Alexey T over 1 year ago

I opened logs panel in QGis 3.4.1. It shows many rendering warnings

2018-11-10T20:03:20 WARNING Canvas refresh: 2600 ms

Ecah time I move canvas there are bunch of warnings. And they continue to appear for 10-15 seconds again and again after canvas moving. Even if canvas area is scrolled out of any data.

"forest_bounds_" layers are raster layers. Others are vector.

Did you try debugview? If it's setup correctly you will definitely see some qgis output there.
