Multiple node process for TypeScript project

How i can debug to know exatcly why there is these 2 node process? I just open de project and it spans these 2 nodes, the worst its start happen a few days ago, before that it was only 1 node process consuming an average of 600mb of ram.

So why this node of 1gb+ came from? i have only 8gb of ram so this is a bit huge, and that is doing nothing, no files open nothing running, when working it could reach around 1.7gb

These 2 node process has webstorm as its parent.

Most probably these are language services (linters, Typescript language server, Tailwind service - the set of services depends on your project setup). You can use the Activity Monitor to view the processes details - see
