I've been using Android Studio for about a month now and today, kinda all of the sudden it started performing really slowly. When I'm typing in AS the fan spins up and performance slows down. Keystrokes aren't displayed for almost a second sometimes. I have about 40 sub-projects in my gradle build and it has been this way for weeks now. I did update to the latest stable version on Monday, so I'm on 1.2.2. I was an Intellij user at my previous job so I don't have my notes on how I reconfigured my system to handle these kinds of issues (they're in the old inbox at former company).
I'm on XUbuntu Linux 15.04, the machine is a fast Quad Core i7. I'm using OpenJDK 8 as my JVM for AS. I've set studio.vmoptions as follows:
Just out of curiosity. This is a farily large Android project. Is Intellij better suited for these kinds of systems than Android Studio? Currently AS seems to be meeting our needs (thought some Gradle things could be better). We don't have big database issues yet and our development is just in Java and Groovy at this point. I guess I'm just wondering if continuing to use the free version of AS is going to cause us to hit a big roadblock in the future.
