Memory Leak in IDEA 8.1?

I was running IDEA 8.1 from the command line on my MAC to determine which plugin was throwing an exception when I got the message below upon normal shutdown of the IDE. Is this a known issue or is it something about my setup? Thanks.



log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.commons.beanutils.PropertyUtils).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

Thanks, looks like http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-31796

So, it's not only your personal setup problem.

Alexander.

I'm having to kill IDEA 8.1 once a day due to the memory usage - it starts off using around 115Mb and by the end of the day its upwards of 700Mb (after repeated garbage collections)

I saw this problem starting about 3 weeks ago. However, I attributed it to the Rearranger Plugin that I had just installed.
If I don't use the Rearranger then I don't see the error.

Hello Nick,

I'm having to kill IDEA 8.1 once a day due to the memory usage - it
starts off using around 115Mb and by the end of the day its upwards of
700Mb (after repeated garbage collections)


We've added a workaround for a significant memory leak in Swing in the latest
8.1.1 EAP build. Hopefully it should help.

Touch wood, but memory use seems to be staying nice and low in #9742, so
hopefully what you've done has worked some... Nice one! 8 has been a
real memory hog for me til now. I'm hoping that this isn't just a lucky
aberration and that the constant disk paging won't be coming back to
haunt me soon...

While 9742 is certainly an improvement over the previous build, it is still leaking a lot - after initial project startup on our trunk build, IDEA uses around 130Mb, after a few hours of use, its uses the entire allocated heap (currently set to 784Mb).  I'm being forced to close down and restart after 3-4 hours since IDEA becomes so sluggish and unresponsive.

I upgraded to 8.1.3 Build#9886 and still notice the same memory increase issue (upto 700mb) - even after garbage collecting many times.
Intellij is all good except for memory hogging and jdk parsing whenever machine gets restarted...

I wish intellij comes up with a plugin which shows how much each internall process is taking up memory...(not sure if it's already there, enlighten me).
