high CPU usage
Last modified: 2007-03-27 00:11:34 EDT
I have a 1.6 GHz P4M with 768 MB of RAM. Often, when I run eclipse,
it ties up the entire CPU until I kill the program. This seems to
happen most often when problems occur in plugins.
When running the standard eclipse 2.1.2 using the Sun 1.4.2_02 JVM, I
don't have any problems with the CPU.
Does anything appear in workspace/.metadata/.log?
Exceptions are sometimes logged there.
Also, what eclipse RPM are you using?
And on which platform/OS?

Here is my eclipse log file. There are a number of errors in there--I'm not

I had a look at your log file. It looks like the perforce plugin may
be giving you some problems (some NPEs in net.sourceforge.perforce.*).
When you run eclipse, how are you starting it up? Your log file seems
to indicate that you are using the Sun JVM.
We might not see a gcj entry in the .log file if it hangs
without ever giving an exception. So the absence of this
in the .log file isn't necessarily indicative.
I haven't been able to reproduce this. I've had a gcj-eclipse
open for several days (4 or 5), with many projects (PDE, JDT,
