Generating preview data of just 5 rows can take a crazy long time (5,6,10 minutes). Preview data is generated every time a table is selected, the generation criteria is change, or application defaults are changed.
I need to cancel the preview so I can complete my task. However, cancelling the preview generation can take a really, really, really crazy long time.
I have spent several hours already today just tweaking an existing project. It took a full work day to initially create it.
I want to set the manual foreign to "repeat keys" instead of "all keys unique" which would prevent the generation of specified 1 million rows - which isn't discovered until the actual data generation fails. Should this take 5 or 10 minutes per table to make such a small change?
The project has 28 tables. My workstation has 8 GB of ram and a Core i7 quad-core, hyper threaded CPU.
Task manager shows 4 cores of 8 in use. I'm guessing Data Generator 2 deadlocks.
