Constant pauses with wait cursor

For me, AppCode 3.3 often gets into a state where every mouse click or attempt to type text in the editor results in a several second pause with a wait cursor. The program is unusable at this point and I have to restart.  When this happens, there are no background tasks running in AppCode. Having more than one project open seems to exasperate the issue. I am also seeing this in the latest EAP.

Anybody else seeing this or know what might be going on?


I also get this issue and it's starting to get really annoying to work with. Is there anything that we can do to avoid this issue? This version seems to perform a lot worst than previous one.


I always turn off YourKit integration with the EAP builds. This seems to fix this problem for me. Edit appcode.vmoptions and remove the plugin line.



Sorry for the inconvenience! Performance problems may be caused by insufficient amount of memory. Please try enabling memory indicator (Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | Appearance | Show memory indicator) and keep an eye on it for some time. If it is close to the limit at the time when you are experiencing the problems, then try to increase the Xmx JVM option according to this guide.
If it does not help, please capture a CPU snapshot so we can take a look at what is going on. It would help us in our investigation!
