That is strange. The default histogram is not really calculated, but
should always be available right away. The default histogram is the one
that is opened from the toolbar button.
What could be slow, though, is the calculation of the retained sizes for
each line of the histogram. Use the approximate times instead. It has an
error of about 2 to 4 percent, but it is ways faster. Any you'll find the
big chunks either way. But this functionality has to be triggered from the
Also, the histogram is used in other contexts too (e.g. displaying subsets
like all objects kept alive by all hash maps etc.). Depending on the
context, the calculation could take some time. But not for the default

Yes, the index files are created during the first parsing. After that,
they are used read-only. You could transfer them to another machine along
the heap dump and reopen the heap dump there.
