RubyMine has always been a resource hog for me, but I don't mind as long as it uses the resources to help me work faster (I love all its features -- except the spell checker, I despise that one).
RubyMine no longer crashes like it used to often do (the only reason I still used NetBeans), but it always slows down to a crawl after a couple of hours.
So I was wondering if changing vmoptions would be any help. Currently I have this:
I have no idea what those actually do, but I'm kind of hoping I can optimize that to keep RubyMine from slowing down.
I have a 64bit machine w/7GB of RAM, running Ubuntu 9.04, so I'd be willing to give RubyMine as much RAM as it needs to run smoothly.
PS: I use the sun-jdk in case that's of any help.
