I have noticed something strange in IDEA EAP IU-95.260. The YourKit profiler agent is enabled since this is EAP, which is fine, but I was under the impression that it doesn't do anything unless you start cpu or memory profiling.
What I have found is that during heavy processing, often in another program running on the same machine, that IDEA starts writing a bunch of thread dumps to the IDEA system directory, e.g.
Many multiple thread dumps are being generated in rapid-fire succession. See screenshot -- there are many with the same timestamp 5:26 PM 5:27 PM, etc.
Attached is a picture of the Disk Write I/O that this was causing . Sinc Disk I/O is the weak point in my quad core workstation, I would like to avoid this extra I/O IDEA is doing when my system is under load.
Is there a way to turn PerformanceWatcher off while still keeping ability to do cpu/memory profiler if need be?
