There seems to be quite a few posts related to high CPU usage; however, I'm experiencing high memory usage which is freezing the program.
I'm running a fairly high-powered machine - Windows 10 Pro Creators Edition, Intel Haswell i7, 32GB memory, 250GB mSata, dual Nvidia 780 graphics cards. Most recently, I was editing a markdown file (a GitHub Gist) when Webstorm froze. My memory usage was almost 1GB when I killed the process. My CPU usage and temperatures are low when I'm using Webstorm, it's just this memory leak issue that's been happening a lot since I upgraded to 2017.2.1.
I'm running a fairly lean setup with respect to plugins, and the only 3rd party plugins I'm using are String Manipulation and Material UI Theme.
This was happening non-stop a few days ago, and I found that uninstalling the CodeGlance plugin (the one that mimics Sublime's minimap) seemed to resolve the issue. I was working on a React app yesterday with no issues, but then this morning it froze again.
Is anyone else experiencing memory issues and freezing? Any best practices you can share for making the program run smooth?
Thanks in advance!
