I am using webstorm with a node.js project.
The project is big, but not unreasonably big.
From time to time webstorm becomes very slow up to unresponsive.
I notice that webstorm takes lots of CPU (40%-50% is very typical).
I have a reasonably powerful machine.
This must be a setting thing (watchers?), I find that when idle (just have a few files open), even when I scroll up-down in a file, cpu usage can go up to 20% easy.
When typing in a single character into a file (for example a backspace), cpu usage jumps to 40-50% for several seconds.
What is this?
Please don't ask me to just take snapshots because it is a lot of work, and last time you could not deduct anything from that.
