I have been experiencing severe performance problems with some recent
builds: IDEA freezes while I'm editing Java or JSP files. Some times the
freeze time is a couple of seconds, but more often it's a minute or more. It
always recovers, but the behavior reoccurs frequently. During a freeze the
IDEA process is not using more than 0-3 % of the CPU. GUI animations (such
as the error occurred popup movement) also freezes, indicating that it might
be a GC-related freeze. I have tried to tweak the JVM memory settings but
have not found any solution.
I'm running JDK 1.6.0_04 in Windows Vista Ultimate on a dual core CPU at
2,40 GHz with 2 Gb of memory.
