100% CPU on OS X 10.5.1 with Selena #7684

I'm not sure what the cause is as I have not seen a pattern but the cpu just pegs. It could be after a pause in use or in the middle of a period of use. If i do a sample process, it usually stops it momentarily then the cpu pegs again continuously. This makes IDEA pretty much unusable.

It also seems the process name is lost, not sure if that makes a difference.

I attached a couple process samples.

Thanks.

Hello Brandon,

I'm not sure what the cause is as I have not seen a pattern but the
cpu just pegs. It could be after a pause in use or in the middle of a
period of use. If i do a sample process, it usually stops it
momentarily then the cpu pegs again continuously. This makes IDEA
pretty much unusable.

It also seems the process name is lost, not sure if that makes a
difference.


Please take the CPU snapshots using the built-in YourKit profiling rather
than the system profiler:

I had many problems with this bogging down and found it related to the stream of logging messages IDEA was sending to the /var/logs/system.log.
Worked with IntelliJ to try to turn off that logging but could not.
Eventually just resorted to running IDEA directly from the command line (JetBrains support said this would bypass the logging for sure, and would correct the problem in next release).
That seems to have fixed the problem, though it is a nuisance to go run it from command line.

YOu can run it from command line by opening a terminal window and using:
/Applications/Selena-7626.app/Contents/MacOS/idea 2> /dev/null

Hello Andrew,

This problem is fixed in recent EAP builds. So you can just upgrade to the
latest EAP if you're running EAP builds anyway.
