Webstrom high memory usage - WebStorm 2023.3.4


I am using WebStorm 2023.3.4 and facing an issue with excessive RAM usage, even when the IDE is idle. It can consume over 4.3 GB of RAM, which seems unusually high for my relatively small-scale project.

what Xmx value is specified in Help | Change Memory Settings? Could you please capture a memory snapshot using the "Memory Leak or High Memory Consumption" section of this article: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207241235-Reporting-performance-problems when the IDE memory usage is high? You can enable the memory indicator in the status bar, in the bottom of the application frame (right-click the status bar to enable it) to track the memory usage.
Note that the memory usage in OS task manager normally differs from Java application memory usage. OS Task Manager is reporting the overall memory used by Java process which consists of Java application heap + JVM resources + whatever else, it's a native OS process vs. Java application running in JVM. See https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018776919-Understanding-IDE-memory-allocation- for more info.

and this is my memory indicator

 

My computer's memory usage spikes when I open WebStorm and load my project, even before running the actual project. This happens even when I'm just opening the application and project without actively running any code.

Thank you!

 

the overall memory usage in snapshot is 516 Mb, it doesn't reveal any evident issues. Disabling Copilot and Grazie Light plugins (the spell checking dictionaries are known for the high memory consumption, but there is not much we can do with them) can reduce the overall memory usage.

I have disabled copilot, It spiked when i used AI Assistant and my internet connectivity reduced to kilobytes. Could that be a reason too. I am experiencing High Ram usage on 2024.1 Beta Elena Pogorelova

Chukwuma Akunyili  Please try taking memory snapshot when the memory usage is high (as suggested in my comment above) and submit it along with the logs (Help | Collect Logs and Diagnostic Data) within a support ticket
