Today I tried to run a simple
find command in Iterm, and found it to be unusably slow even for simple queries. Here’s the simplest example:
time find . -depth 0 . real 0m11.056s user 0m0.571s sys 0m5.186s
I get similar results from any directory, and whether using ITerm, Terminal, or VS Code’s integrated terminal. I’m not setting any find or file system options in my .bash_profile or other startup scripts.
What could be slowing it down?
- Big Sur: 11.2.3
- Iterm: 3.4.8
- Terminal: 2.11
- shell: bash 5.1.4(1)-release via homebrew
- VS Code: 1.57.1
