We are using IntelliJ 6.0.1 (build 5784) which is frequently running out of memory despite having reasonable memory settings. Here are our idea.vmoptions:
System is Linux 2.6 running Sun JDK 1.5.0_09 and has about 1G of free memory out of 2G total. I've tried playing around with both mx and MaxPermSize but eventually IntelliJ still crashes with the following message:
Exception in thread "CompilerThread0" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: requested 268435464 bytes for Chunk::new. Out of swap space?
This seems like some thread is trying to allocate an awful lot of memory. Is this a known issue with a possible workaround?
