Pycharm eats entire CPU without reason

How can I get more feedback on what the hell pycharm is trying to do when it grinds my system to a halt?


This happens when perusing code or making minor code changes, and the activity monitor fails to account for 2/5 of the CPU its using.

First of all, please disable all custom plugins, go to **File | Settings | Plugins** click the gear icon and choose "Disable all downloaded plugins", to avoid third-party affection.

If it does not make any difference,  please submit a request  at to investigate this,   attach the following information: 

- logs folder zipped from ***Help | Collect logs and Diagnostic Data***

- CPU snapshot following the article

Thank for your effort!
