Accourding to docu the maximum usage of memory by idea is defined by the
following line in idea.lax:
lax.nl.java.option.additional=-Xms16m -Xmx128m -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -Di
there can be a plus of 30 mb for the JVM itself. well in my environment idea
is up to 200 mb although the internal
memory display (right bottom border) produces only 127.
any ideas on how to get the memory usage down would be appreciated
