Hello SonarCloud users,
We are happy to report that using our benchmarks, we measured an average of 50% increase in performance. In other words, the security analyzer is twice faster than before
This is only averages. The exact improvement depends on the size of the project. Generally it can be said that the larger the project is, the bigger the performance improvement will be.
For very small projects (say, projects which took only a minute or two to analyze), you may see no difference. For larger projects (which took more than 10 minutes), you will probably see a much more noticeable performance improvement. For example, js-emoji is a project whose analysis took 6 minutes before. Now, the analysis time is down to 1 minute. That’s a 90% performance increase!
This is available now on SonarCloud and will be included in SonarQube 9.1.
