I noticed IDEA 14 was really slow, especially on startup. Then I found that "-server" is listed as an option in idea.vmoptions. I didn't put it there so I guess it's the default?
I really recommend to remove that line as IDEA is a LOT more responsive with the client VM.
Another option would be -XX:+TieredCompilation to try and get the advantages of both VMs. I will probably just stick to the client VM though.
Any feedback from others on this? :-)
