Eclipse performing slow on a windows box

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.

zeekoxBlog: speed up Eclipse under linux

1. use official java VM
2. add/modify params in eclipse.ini:
-Xms1024m
-Xmx1024m
-XX:PermSize=256m
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m

Some of that comes from here:

EclipseZone – Tuning Eclipse Performance and Avoiding …

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
arguments:
-vmargs -Xms256m -Xmx256m
-XX:PermSize=64m -XX:MaxPermSize=64m

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!
