High CPU usage

Hi.

I'm working on a medium sized multi module Maven project using Selena 7938, but experiences a problem where IntelliJ consumes around 90% of the CPU on my Intel Core Duo MacBook Pro. I have tried different memory settings, without any luck. No background tasks is running.

Does anyone experienced this, and does anyone have a tip on how to figure out what is going on?

Hello Andre M.Bonkowski,

I'm working on a medium sized multi module Maven project using Selena
7938, but experiences a problem where IntelliJ consumes around 90% of
the CPU on my Intel Core Duo MacBook Pro. I have tried different
memory settings, without any luck. No background tasks is running.

Does anyone experienced this, and does anyone have a tip on how to
figure out what is going on?


Please capture a CPU snapshot, as described in http://support.jetbrains.com/kb/entry.jspa?externalID=192&categoryID=5

Hi.

I got help from Jetbrains support to find the reason of the high CPU usage (thanks Serge). The problem was that I opened the project from a symlinked directory. I was told that in some cases SVN integration may have performance problems when there are symlinks as some native code is used to resolve them.
