memory problems with 2013

hi.

anyone experience huge memory problems with 2013? It doesn't happen every time, but when it does idea's memory envelope just starts growing. I once killed the process at over 1GIG! It happens specifically when a new project is loading or while I try to create a new project. One place it has happened repeatedly was when I would open a File Browser during the project creation to select a storage location for project files.

At first I went after the usual suspects which after every new build is likely to mess things up:
-removed all plug-ins
-clean the cache, jar, and vcs directories which might contain data no longer supported in a new build.
-created a new project and modules.

Has anyone experienced this?

I have noticed VERY sporadic memory consumption. Nothing to put my
finger on. I guess I have not been a good EAPer because I just
restarted IntelliJ. :(

What I experienced cannot be ignored because the memory leak is very fast. We are talking here memory growth in the order of 100 MB every 10 seconds if not more...

So it would not go unnoticed!

I see this everyday with build 2013.
I have to shutdown IDE and start new.

There is someone else who has experienced this problem.

hi.

After going through a completely clean install without importing anything... I still had the problem when opening a file chooser.

but...

I seem to have found a work around by removing the file watcher dll's (FileWatcherNT.dll and FileWatcher2K.dll).

This seems rather strange to me, since we all use file watcher with no
problems here. However if you insist the problem is concerned with this,
can I then contact you privately by email for further discussion?

Yes, I get it on my machine at work - Windows 2000, and I'm using build
2057 (have been having this problem since build 2018 or so).

What's strange, is that although we supposedly all have the same build
of Windoze, I'm the only one at work having these problems (which is
ironic, as I'm the guy who "evaluates" the builds and tells everybody
else what's "good").

All builds work fine on my Windoze XP box and my OSX laptop.

I've noticed that the runaway memory leak (sometimes up to 2 GB!) occurs
only when a dialog is opened.

I've previously tried such things as a clean install, without importing
settings from previous builds, and with no plugins. No go. As soon as
I start to create a new project in the fresh install and start to select
the JDK location, BLAM! The memory leak begins. If I catch it soon
enough, I can kill Idea before Windoze goes into permaswap mode, forcing
me to restart the system to get out of permaswap (Microsoft has never
figured out how to do virutal memory worth a damn. My PowerBook laptop
is a breath of fresh air when dealing with virutal memory.)

I'll try removing the filewatch DLLs and see if that fixes it.

You can reply to me if you need to at my work address:
douglas.bullard@nike.com, or on this forum.

The DLL problem is confirmed - removing the filewatcher dlls did fix the
problem.

I notice that they've got a different size than the 4.03 dlls -
something changed somewhere.

Hope this helps the good folks at Intellij diagnose the problem.
