I am attaching to a remote Java process for debugging purposes. IntelliJ connects to the remote address/port of the JVM fine, but when I insert breakpoints into the code it causes the remote process to spike the CPU and become unusable. I tested using eclipse to attach to the process fine. In eclipse I can attach to the same process and insert breakpoints and step through the code fine. What is intelliJ doing when I insert breakpoints that causes this problem?
The remote java process is running java version 1.4.2 and is started with the debug options -Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=8004
