i just installed the newest eap, and i am more than surpised. the memory consumption has usually been reaching 600mb within minutes and idea tortured my cpu (probably gc), now i'm at ~300mb instead, the code completition response time has also increased, the "first app start after idea restart because there was a new version of a plugin i use" is faster then before (idea sometimes locked up for a couple of minutes - this didn't happen since the 7294-eap anymore), code editing in general is a lot smoother.
has anything been done about this, or is this caused by
+ deleting all idea caches
+ increasing the max memory to 900mb instead of 600? (this would make no sense, as idea is just using about 300mb right now)
to avoid confusion:
i work on 2 computer, 1 is a 3.5 ghz core2duo, overclocked, biggest project 5k classes, max memory 400mb, never had any problems.
the other one is a 3ghz p4, hyperthreaded, 2gb ram, max memory was 600, then 800, deleted the caches, now the xmx is 900. editing has been sluggish until i've set the memory to 800 (it was the 727x-build), project size 14k classes, but after i installed 7312, the editor has become noticeably faster compared to the last eap. i had to wait seconds for a code completition stroke to show me a result, now it's just there...
