Is it me or is 3185 using a TON of memory

I have 2 windows open. It says it is using 84M of 167M. Task manager
shows 250M!!!

Just as a side note, JBoss is also using 114M. Damn. 1GB is no longer
enough.

340M here. I tried to blame it on the PropertiesEditor plugin (sorry
Dmitry) but that wasn't it.

if you're editing XML, it's completely out of hand.

Same here, and when I open the settings window it starts eating 15MB chunks rapidly and garbage collecting every 30 seconds or so. I have some plugins installed, so I'm going to remove all and see if it helps.

It doesn't, I don't have any, and I see that behavior

I'm not noticing excessive memory use when editing XML - but thats
because IDEA likes to crash alot when I do that :(

I wonder what happened to the memory snapshot icon?

There's something fishy...

I just opened a fresh 3185. Task bar states 11M of 14M, Task Manager
claims 57,860KB, about 4 times as much...

I opened a project that is an XML / JavaScript / HTML project with
around 1200 files (no Java) and that jumped to 18 of 27 (IJ), 76,276KB (TM).

I replaced it with a small Java project with 3 Java modules and 1 web
module and now it's 34M of 39M, 105,240KB.

There's definitely something interesting...

Hey, may be it's a theme for a new "Charlies' Angels" movie - "The
Angels after the missing RAM". They always have such "amazing" IDEAs... :)

A few hints why task manager may show more memory used comparing to IDEA
mem indicator.
1. JVM stores class file data (compiled code) in a separate memory pool which
is not counted in by mem indicator. Roughly, sum the sizes of each jar file
in idea/lib and plugins/*/lib and jre/

2. IDEA heavily uses memory-mapped files stuff, which feels very like swap
space but may sink into real memory once it is available. This stuff easily
swaps out though.

I never thought about plugins. I went through and removed the plugins
that I never use (even the ones that come with IJ). Maybe that will help.
