Performance and memory problems

Since CLion tries to parse your whole code base, including all the header files used, to understand your code correctly and provide accurate code completion, code navigation, refactorings and other intelligent features. On large code bases (especially when using Boost), performance and memory issues during indexing and editing are possible.

Increasing memory may help to resolve performance problems. To check the memory usage, enable the memory indicator in Preferences/Settings | Appearance & Behavior | Appearance | Show memory indicator.

To report a performance problem, please follow these instructions. To find IDE logs to attach to the problem, use this link.

This is laughably bad. I am having the same memory problem as most others on this thread. I have been a paying customer for years but that is about to end.

Hmm, I didn't have the CSV plugin in my plugins, so maybe it is an additional issue,  I experienced it because the ChangeReminder plugin which scans filesystems and holds paths for files to notify when changes happen may have been recursively scanning in an endless loop.  With .git you have a huge set of files and diffs inside of the .git directory.

 

The main thing that did it for me was disabling this, which in turn disabled the git plugin.

FWIW an update for the CSV Plugin has been pushed, with mention of a memory issue in the change notes; might be worth updating

Same memory issue with phpstorm 2020.1.1.  Only temporary solution I found is to downgrade to 2019.3.

I am having the same issue with Ultimate 2020.1.1.  I almost returned my MAC.  Jetbrains - you guys must be better.  I have submitted the logs to both Apple and Itellij. You guys are better than this.  I had to downgrade like Ferx suggested.  I don't know what I lost by doing that.  Note: I am doing react-native development on a MacBook.

Had the same problem. Disabling the CSV plugin solved this.
