Mongo db plugin not visible

I have installed Mongodb plugin, but I can't find database/collections tree. When I try to add mongo server, the settings are not saved. What am I missing?

Hi Thomas,

Mongo plugin is a 3rd party plugin (not made by JetBrains) -- you should contact author of the plugin directly: documentation, forum/issues.

There are two questions which I did not separed clearly:
    1. the mongo question. I agree I should ask the author.
    2. I can't find database/collections section niether in the setting nor as a db explorer window to display. Can you help me with this please?

BTW how do I change the memory setting for WbStorm? I have 16Gb available and I would like to use it is this will give me better performance.

Regards,
Thomas

I have not used this plugin and cannot tell you for sure where to look.

But accordingly to their screenshots the settings should be available in File | Settings (Preferences on Mac) -- just type "Mongo" in search box on top left corner.

As for "db explorer window" -- accordingly to screenshots it is called "Mongo Explorer" and it should be a tool window docked to left or right side (you may be able to find it under  "View | Tool Windows" menu as well)

BTW how do I change the memory setting for WbStorm? I have 16Gb available and I would like to use it is this will give me better performance.

It's already configured for best balance between memory consumption and performance -- more memory in Java application does not always mean better performance (more memory requires more time for GC to run through).

In any case -- memory settings can be changed in WebStorm.exe.vmoptions/WebStorm.vmoptions file (or /Applications/<WebStormXX>.app/Contents/Info.plist if on MAC OS -- not so sure about this one)
