    Multiple sessions of revit open causes the little wheel to spin spin spin

    Does anyone know why if I have one session of Revit 2015 open and one session of 2016 open that it would cause one to slow down(little green i'm thinking circle) between every command?

    I have the same issue. I've been chalking it up to needing more RAM but it is possible there is some conflict as well.

    Win 8.1 Pro x64
    i7-4790 3.60GHz
    16Gb

    I've never experienced this sort of thing and work on projects in R2012, 2014, 2015, and 2016 concurrently all of the time. Perhaps as Cellophane mentions, a RAM issue?

    16GB RAM should be enough today. Tomorrow will need 32 and next week you'll need 64.

    We encountered this issue, but it was not tied to opening different versions of Revit on the same workstation. We got the spinning doughnut syndrome when there was a second person in the model.

    1) Use Windows Task Manager to identify whether it is the CPU or RAM is peaking during the spinning moment.
    2) Use Wireshark or MS Process Manager (Revit.exe) to see where Revit is stalling.
    3) Were there any major updates in your network infrastructure: new file servers, converted servers to a new OS, new router, etc.

    Item 3 was the cause of our grief - it turned out to be an arcane error of a processing bottleneck at the NIC interface when we upgraded file servers. I think it was tied to SMB2 vs. SMB3

    Autodesk has also resported the symptom can relate to using different OS for different workstations on the same project (related to SMB versions).

    btw. I tested on our system - no problems working in Revit 2015-UR9 and 2016-UR2 concurrently on the same workstation.

    Scott, Did you ever figure this out? I have had the same issue for a while now. Two sessions of Revit 2018.3 open and the cursor constantly spins... but only when the cursor is within one of the Revit apps. I don't see any CPU or RAM spikes. I have a very capable computer (i9 and 32GB Ram and the faster SSDs). No fun!

    Funny… I think I just figured it out. I got to thinking, Scott probably has similar things installed (i.e. Revit add-ins). I just killed the ‘ArchVision Dashboard’ process and it immediately stopped.

    Thank you! I've had this problem for quite some time over multiple machines. Killing ArchVision Dashboard process eliminated it
