Eclipse is using too much memory and what is the best configuration?

Spread the love

Question Description

What I want is the lightest possible version eclipse so that it consumes as low memory as possible when running. Does any one know how to configure eclipse to be as light as possible?

Currently I am using Eclipse STS but I want to ditch it because it uses average 1 GB memory by itself when not running my projects. I am using 64 bit linux platform.

I just do plain Java/Groovy/Grails and Scala web application development and also Javascript debugging HTML/CSS. I am not using any heavy weight application servers.

Practice As Follows

  • remove all unnecessary plugins
  • you can change -Xmx in eclipse ini
