I have recently introduced IntelliJ (7.0.1) to the project I'm working on (7000+ classes and using Hibernate and Spring) and am trying to figure out the ideal memory/gc settings for running IDEA. The development machines being used are Windows based with 3.4Ghz Xeons with 2gb RAM. I've also noticed that with certain settings in idea.exe.vmoptions IDEA fails to start without an informative error message. Rectifiying generally involves reducing the ammount of memory specified for a particular setting. If that sounds a bit vague, then it's not surprising as the behaviour is inconsistent. What I want is the best memory/gc settings for a responsive IDEA when working on a project this size.
Any advice/suggestions welcome.
