I have PhpStorm running on my laptop. The server is on its own machine and the browsers are run on a different pc too. So PhpStorm is the only program that is activly being used on the computer.
The laptop running it is a thinkpad x61 with 2.5gig of memory. (2x intel core 2Duo T7300 2.0GHz)
It has a new SSD hard drive in it.
Java is sun java 1.6
What I want is to eliminate as much wait time as possible.
I thought the sdd would speed things up, and it has, but there are still wait points. Like when PhpStorm is indexing the project.
One noticable one that is re-producable is
* right click on a file in the projects pane.
* when the menu appears, move the mouse from the top of the list to the bottom, The orange 'selected' indicator will scroll down the list and will always stop and wait on the 'Local History' option before continuing to the bottom.
* move the mouse back to the top again and the orange 'currently selected' will stop and pause on "Synchronize 'filename.php' ".
Does anyone have any tips to give PhpStorm access to all the resources it needs. I dont care if its greedy. Better greedy and fast because there is nothing else in use.
I've tried changin the settings in webide.vmoptions but none seam to make a positive improvement.
