[resolved] Extreme System Wide slowness after large codebase index

I have a large codebase, many thousands of files. I just completed an index of it, took a while but it succeeded. Now everything on my computer is super slow and frequently crashing. Is it a known bad practice to build a massive index? I’m on an M1 Pro.

An M1 Pro should definitely be able to handle a large index.

Is it an open source repo? Would love to try and reproduce internally.

Sorry, I just discovered this was not due to Cursor. We can close this. Seems like a chrome bug that got introduced right around the same time I built the index. Not using chrome has addressed my issue! Sorry for the false alarm!
