Memory Status Taskbar applet [message #485090] Thu, 10 September 2009 13:58 Go to next message

Hello everyone,

When the workspace loads, after the initial installation, there is a nifty
little "applet|widget" (not sure of the Eclipse term for it) which shows
heap usage and provides a "Perform GC Now" operation.

After configuring a workspace with projects and such, this "applet" tends
to disappear with no way to re-configure it and no hint to the name or
location from which to find it's configuration.

Alas, I searched the lists and google high and low for various keywords,
but without knowing the exact name of this feature, the terms, being all
very generic, "memory, gc, garbage collection, applet, widget, etc..."
produce nothing of value.

Any hints?

Sincerely,

Ray

The enabling/disabling of that widget is controlled by a Preferences
setting: General > Show heap status.
Note that it is movable/dockable, so you might have inadvertently
dragged it somewhere that it is not obvious or partially hidden. If the
option is enabled but you can't see the widget, try un-checking it,
restart Eclipse, then re-enabling it.

Hope this helps,
Eric
