Toad response is very intermittent during large Schema Compares


During a large Schema Compare, Toad is not responsive during various comparison steps. There are fairly brief moments when I get response back. Would it be possible to thread it so it runs in the background and doesn’t interfere with other activities?


Hi Dale,

That’s something that’s been on my long term to do list for a while now. I’ll take a look at it soon.



Hi Dale,

Give it a try next beta and let me know.



I had to back this change out. It seemed to work, but what I did was a bit of a quick fix and may have exposed us to a possibility for some weird behavior in the future. It’s still on my list to do this, but it will take some time.


You may have seen the beta release notes about this, but I wanted to update this forum post. Toad 13 will have threaded Schema Compare, Database Compare, Generate Schema Script, and Generate Database Script.
