Out of Memory error just happened to me and my coworker.

So I'm working away, and suddenly PHPStorm tells me I'm out of memory. The memory setting was set at 750, so I upped it to 1500 and restarted. Same thing happened right away so I upped it to 3000. I've restarted PHPStorm, and my computer. Right now, PHPStorm memory usage is at 3.34 GB in my activity monitor. This seems like it's about 3-6 times of what it should be.

I was complaining about this to my coworker and then it happened to him!

Does anyone know what might have happened recently? Has this happened to anyone else today? Seems odd that it happened to both of us within 10 minutes. We've been using PHPStorm for months.

Please enable -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError per instructions at
https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/29983118-Reporting-performance-problems and,  once PhpStorm runs out of memory, create a support ticket and attach the created snapshots to it. Your idea.log (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/23352446-Locating-IDE-log-files) might be also helpful

Done and done. Thanks.

Also, "File" > "Invalidate Caches / Restart" seemed to help. It got it down to 1.5 GB anyway... for now at least.
