Rubymine Sucks up CPU

Hello,

I've had several instances where RubyMine sucks up 100% CPU.

It doesn't happen all the time, but when it happens, it doesn't seem to be doing anything visible (indexing or something like that), and the editor really becomes unusable, (ie, type a letter, takes 2-3 seconds to show up on the screen).

I tried do what this document said to:

http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/docs/DOC-1144

However, when I make the change in the startup script to enable the CPU and Memory snapshot tool...it crashes when I try to start rubymine.  I take out the change that the document recommends and it is fine.


I'm using the Beta 2 version 2 rubymine on Mac OS X Leopard.

Any ideas?

thanks,

Mark

Hello lylo,

I spoke too soon.  Getting massive CPU spikes again in the last hours.
I've uploaded 5 CPU snapshots and one memory snapshot, plus I've
'blamed rubymine core' a few times due to IDE errors.  I hope you can
find and solve more bugs from this!


We did. :) Please try the RC2 build which is now available on the Web site.

Hi again

I'm now running the official 2.0 release but I'm afraid I'm still seeing CPU spikes and terrible performance.   I have restarted the application but it didn't help -- just scrolling a CSS file is causing CPU usage to hit 120% -- this is crazy.  I've taken yet another CPU (x2) and memory snapshot and uploaded them to the FTP site.

Please can you get the dev time to spend a week bug mashing all these GC/memory issues?   New features are great, but not if the application is so slow as to be unusable.  Developers need an IDE which is super-responsive at all times, it's the most important aspect of any IDE!

Back to TextMate again....
