Obsidian starts very slowly

my Obsidian starts very slowly today. It stops loading showing that screen:

and after 1,5 minutes or so it finally finished loading.

my Task-Manager shows the following:

What can I do?
Too many plugins?
Or could it be, that it has something todo with the new insider build 1.4.5?

I’d start there.

I have a zero-note Test vault that does that lately but my main vault with 13k notes and some 60 plugins activated does not do it.
So I haven’t figured it out either.

A possible solution involves purging:

Startup time has always been a pain point for Obsidian. It’s an epecially bad problem on Android, where the app may be frequently evicted from memory without user control. This makes it pretty much useless as a quick mobile note taking app.

Can we maybe have some assurance that startup performance is going to get prioritized to be included in an update in the near future? I care about this way way more than the canvas or any other new features.

I also encountered this situation, every time the computer restarts after the first time to open obsidian is very slow
