Looking for advice on configuring IntelliJ IDEA for optimal performance on HPC servers.


Hello everyone,

I hope this message finds you well. I'm currently in the process of setting up IntelliJ IDEA for development work on High Performance Computing (HPC) servers. As someone relatively new to this environment, I'm seeking advice and recommendations from those experienced in configuring IntelliJ IDEA for optimal performance in such settings.

My primary goals are to ensure smooth integration with the HPC server environment and to maximize the efficiency of resource utilization.
If you have any insights, experiences, or resources that you think would be valuable for someone in my position, I would greatly appreciate your input. Feel free to share your thoughts, suggestions, or any relevant links.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance. I'm eager to learn from the expertise of this community and optimize my development environment for HPC server usage.

You can refer to here to increase the memory heap of the IDE if you are working on a large project and experiencing slowdowns: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/increasing-memory-heap.html
Except this, there is no often need to configure anything specifically because the IDEA would try to utilize system resource.

If you have any performance issues when using IntelliJ IDEA in HPC servers, you can also reach out to IntelliJ support via the IDE's main menu `Help | Contact Support`, so we could help you further.
