A lot has been written here about slow development in general and slow testing in particular e. g.:

For my use case I found one reason for slow testing while playing with the Developer Console: Default log-levels are in most tools something like FINE. This may cause very huge log-files and in my case very slow response times (about 2 minutes). Setting the log-levels to ERROR or WARN reduced the waiting-time from 2 minutes to 3 seconds. WOW! That's what I wanted ;-)

Trying to apply what I have just learned to my preferred tools I opened eclipse. But as an unfortunate there in the Force.com IDE it always creates verbose FINE-like logs, even after picking the lowest level for all Log-Categories in the slider... I tried it with v31 on eclipse-4.4 and also v29 on eclipse-4.3. Both nearly the same and it still wastes ~2 minutes for logs I don't need. Something I'm doing wrong here.

Has anyone an idea on how to get rid of this bloated logs in eclipse?

Just found it!

Version 31

Don't set it to NONE, set it to ERROR or WARN and the bulky logs will go away. Performance is fast as Developer Console. I think NONE doesn't stands for NO LOGS, but maybe for NOT SET USE DEFAULT.

Version 29

In the older version there are less slider-options... But I was able to get nearly the same speed using

  • Apex code ==> ERROR or WARN
  • all the other settings ==> NONE
