I have Eclipse on a windows box that is performing VERY slowly… I forgot that I haven’t changed the memory settings on that. This is a little info on it.
1. use official java VM
2. add/modify params in eclipse.ini:
Some of that comes from here:
For a machine with 512MB of ram with the developer mainly using just
Eclipse (any maybe a browser and IM) I would suggest the following
-vmargs -Xms256m -Xmx256m
So for the box I am referring to, I will try this for the shortcut target:
C:\eclipse\eclipse.exe -vmargs -Xms256m -Xmx256m -XX:PermSize=64m -XX:MaxPermSize=64m
Initial impression… nice speedup indeed!
