IDEA 7.0.1 on OS X logs HUGE AMOUNTS to syslog

My /var/log/system.log grew with 70MB worth of IDEA entries today.

Mostly stack traces that all end like this:

Nov 14 16:17:58 Mac .IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.1[7106]: java.lang.Throwable
Nov 14 16:17:58 Mac .IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.1[7106]: at com.intellij.openapi.diagnostic.Logger.assertTrue(Logger.java:89)
Nov 14 16:17:58 Mac .IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.1[7106]: at com.intellij.psi.impl.file.impl.FileManagerImpl.a(FileManagerImpl.java:12)
Nov 14 16:17:58 Mac .IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.1[7106]: at com.intellij.psi.impl.file.impl.FileManagerImpl.findClass(FileManagerImpl.java:112)
Nov 14 16:17:58 Mac .IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.1[7106]: at com.intellij.psi.impl.PsiManagerImpl$PsiElementFinderImpl.findClass(PsiManagerImpl.java:20)

Anyone else seeing this?

Hello Stefan,

This is not related to OS X. Please delete your caches directory.

Hello Stefan,

This is not related to OS X. Please delete your
caches directory.


This seems to have done the trick. Thanks.

I got the same problem yesterday, and the trick of deleting the cache seemed to help... for a while. Now the problem is back again. Do I have to delete the cache every day? Is this a Java or IntelliJ problem?

Hi again.

I still have this problem, and the log is full of exceptions from IntelliJ. It is so bad I have to consider some other IDE to get things done, and that is really the last thing I want to do. Can I expect to see a fix to this problem?

Could you please post some exceptions from the log?

There seem to be a lot (30 in the excerpt you posted) of these:


All 30 refer to classes in packages within com.otto.

Are you trying to use classes targeted for Java 6 on Mac OS X's Java 5 JVM?

I'm having the same problem. I have attached a snippet out of my 234MB /var/log/system.log file. On previous occasions this log file has grown to over 400MB.

Has anyone been able to figure out what is going on and how to fix it? When the log files get close to 200M syslogd starts consume a the majority of my processors, making it painful to do anything on the computer, much less develop code with IntelliJ.

Thanks,
Mike

I'm also experiencing this problem with such a high rate of exceptions that it spikes the cpu to 100%. I'll try the fix posted above (I just saw it).

Hello Thomas,

This problem is fixed in IDEA 7.0.3 EAP:
http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/IDEADEV/Selena+EAP

This thread says the question is answered, but I don't see the answer.
This issue is causing me huge problems. The exception, unfortunately,
only lists the class it is looking for, not the one that is causing
the problem. My current log (which is from about 10 minutes of use as
I have to constantly kill syslog and prune the logs) contains
exceptions while looking for 284 different classes most of which are
in java.lang, java.util, java.text, javax.swing, etc. Any help on how
to fix this or track down the culprit would be greatly appreciated.
The exceptions occur at such a high rate that syslogd spikes the cpu
to 100% and my computer becomes totally unusable. Thanks,
