[Performance]Console Pro in non-collapse mode and with large logs causes Slow asset refresh when modifying any script, 45 second



Reproduction steps:
1. Open user's attached project
2. In Profiler window, set profiling to Editor mode
3. Open /Assets/Scripts/AI/OfficeWorkerAI.cs using notepad
4. In "Awake()" function, add a space to the Debug.LogWarning string and save script
5. In Profiler window, observe performance

Expected result: Asset reimport is fast
Actual result: Asset reimport is considerably slow

Reproducible with: 2019.4.9f1, 2020.1.4f1, 2020.2.0b1
Could not test with: 2018.4.27f1 (console errors break project)

Note: Issue reproduces using Asset Import Pipeline V1 and V2
Note 2: The repro project here has been found to have very slow reload time due to Console Pro. If you have a lot of assert,warning the domain reload is greatly impacted negatively due to the usage of Console Pro. To improve you can enable "Collapse" mode which helps or close the Console Pro window. In this case, going from non-collapse Console Pro mode ~25 seconds to ~2.5 seconds in collapse mode and less without Console Pro.
Note 3: Investigating a duplicate issue it was observed that having the Package Manager window open will result in degradation of domain reload time over the course of a session. This is being fixed and tracked here:
Note 4: If you use Burst, upgrading to Burst 1.4.0-preview.5 should allow to save some time. In the case of this project it will save 0.2 seconds on every domain reload.
Note 5: If your domain reload times are not caused by one of the above issue, please report a separate issue with your project so that we can investigate. Thank you!

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2021.1):

    This specific issue was with Console Pro in non-collapse mode. This information was sent to Console Pro developer. We also started a thread dedicated to domain reloads:

    This is slowing down my day massively. Literally tiny 1 line changes are causing anywhere from 20 second to 1 minute Hold ons. 10 or so script changes in an hour means I'm losing 10 minutes waiting for Unity!
