JPDA Remote Debugging speed

Hi,
I am trying to debug a remote server from my machine. IDEA takes a long time to evaluate variables at each of the break points (takes about 5-10 minutes).I tried using shared memory instead of socket as a book suggested that it will speed up debugging but i get an error

Error running umesh: Unable to open debugger port : java.io.IOException "shmemBase_attach failed: The system cannot find the file specified
"

I am currenlty using the EAP version of idea, i noticed the same behaviour even in 7

any suggestions to improve speed will be very valuable

Thanks,
Suresh

    As long as I understand, the server is on another host, right?

    "Shared memory" requires that the debugger (IDEA) and the debuggee (the process that you debug) are on the same machine. And this option works only on Win (afair).

    The slow debugging speed  can be caused by few reasons, read here:
