8.1, Solaris, new install, One class project, unresponsive


I do not know where I am meant to log this issue so aplogy in advance for, most likely, logging it in the wrong place

I have

Installed intellik 8.1 onto Solaris.
Created a new project.
Created a single class.
Modiftying the class file is very very slow.

In the .IntelliJIdea8x/system/log directory a constant stream of thread dumps is produced (368 in ten minutes).

I have attached a couple of these thread dumps.

Any help would be appreciated.

By the way I have tried disabling every plugin and suffer the same problem.

Those thread dumps are created automatically by IntelliJ IDEA if it detects an operation on the AWT event thread taking too long. This way performance problems can more easily be diagnosed.

Looking at the thread dumps it seems way too much time is spent in painting. It is possible this painting performance is better in a newer version of the JVM (which version are you using by the way?). Also it might be possible to enable OpenGL to speed up painting. Lastly, you might want to open a bug report at http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA

Thank you for the responce.

We are running jdk1.6.0_03 so I will try a newer version and see if that improves matters.
