7241 is leaking memory

Hello,

On several occasions yesterday I did not shutdown IDEA in time to preven JVM
seizure due to memory leak and it stuck on me corrupting some of its config
files. None of the prior versions ever did it for me.

I give IDEA plenty of memory it takes while to lock up it does it
consistently now.

It seems especially noticeable with multiple projects opened at the same
time

Anyone experiencing the same problems?

Thanks

Alex

Yeah, same here with 7241(opening and closing multiple projects). Will try to provide memory snapshots.

Same here - I made the mistake of opening a test project alongside the main one, but when I closed it and did a 'make' on the main project, it was compiling for 10 mins (usually 1-2 mins) before I tried to cancel it. After a further 5 mins, it finally cancelled. When I tried to quit IDEA, it prompted me as usual, but when I hit 'Yes', it didn't exit, and just continued editing. After about 6 attempts (I was curious and didn't want to kill the process), it finally did quit.

i am getting this even with just one project open

I am on linux(Fedora Core 6)

memory consumption goes through the roof after a few minutes and a lot of basic features like ctrl-shft-F stop working.

Interestingly this did not happen yesterday when I first ran it. I have tried all the usual things like completely deleting the system directory, like removing plugins that cause exceptions.

actually my problem is on 7255 not 7241.

Hello Florian,

First of all, please upgrade to 7255 which fixes a number of memory leaks.
If you still experience leaks, please take a memory snapshot and upload it
to ftp.intellij.net/.uploads

i have added the vmoption but can not start. I get the following output:

$ ./idea.sh
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not find agent library on the library path or in the local directory: yjpagent

is this not enough:

$ find | grep yjp
./lib/yjp-controller-api-redist.jar
./bin/libyjpagent.so

As far as I know, libyjpagent.so needs to be in the current directory when
you run idea.sh.
