Post subject: How do I configure MyEclipse's memory management?  PostPosted: Apr 25, 2012 - 01:05 AM

I'm using Windows 7 and MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench (10.1) and I'm finding that it's taking up a lot of my Physical Memory Usage (I saw that the Physical Memory Usage History is over 90% on my Windows Task Manager).

I'm developing a Google App Engine project using the Google App Engine / GWT plugin for Eclipse.

The processes taking up a lot of memory are:

javaw.exe
javaw.exe (there are two for some reason)
firefox.exe *32 (which is what I'm running my client application)
plugin-container.exe *32

I don't know what the "*32" means so if it's relevant to why I'm running out of memory please advise me.

I seem to remember that there was some way to configure MyEclipse so it could make better use of my available memory. But I don't remember the steps.

mosofsky,

Could you provide below information to help me investigate -
1. Open MyEclipse IDE, from menu options click on MyEclipse > Installation Summary > Installation Details > [Copy to Clipboard] and paste the same here
2. Are you on 32 bit or 64 OS? In case you are on 64 bit and are running software which are 32 bit, these show up in the task managers as *32. If firefox.exe *32 is taking a lot of resources, please refer help page of firefox here - http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/728566
3. Could you list all the editors or processes you are currently running? This would help me understand why javaw.exe is listed twice in your task manager
4. For memory and performance issues, please refer http://myeclipseide.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t-27215.html

Hi mosofsky,

Thank you for the details. I think you have copy pasted configuration details instead of installation details. Based on the information provided by you, 2 references of javaw.exe could be because of google app engine running inside myeclipse. But I am not sure.

I would recommend you go through MyEclipse Configuration Center > Dashboard and turn off features which you do not use. Also you could disable various components which you are not using here - window > preferences > General > Capabilities. And follow the recommendations listed here - http://myeclipseide.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t-27215.html
Alternately, you could also download the custom installer for MyEclipse and configure to suit your requirements.

Thanks Joy. It's a bit too complicated for me. What if I just get more RAM? If I get more RAM will Eclipse just soak up the new memory?

mosofsky,

Yes, you could add more RAM and give it a shot.

mosofsky,

I would like to add to my earlier reply that you could configure myeclipse memory in myeclipse.ini file located in MyEclipse installation directory by updating the Xmx vmargs. Let me know if your issue is resolved.

Hi Joy,

I boosted my RAM to 8 GB and am seeing better performance on my machine now. The total physical memory utilization is about 4 GB.

Let's consider this resolved for now.

Thank you!

Michael
