Okay...in an attempt to identify where the bloat in my configuration is, I
decided to see what plugins were using the most memory and try to disable
the ones I was not using. I also suspect there are a number of plugins
that are active that I just plan do not need in my current configuration
which may also be slowing things down.

I started looking at Core Tools (Runtime Spy) to do something about it,
but documentation was a little unclear for me and I was unable to get it
working for me.

Looking around, I believe the Core Tools have now been rolled into the
another part of the platform (as I understand it under PDE or Equinox).

I would like each plugin listed and how much memory it is using, but not
sure how to do this with more recent versions.

I would like to see for a given perspective, what plugins are required and
which are not.

For example, if I am just working on a Java EE perspecitve, it does seem
likely that I need C environment related plugins or many of the dynamic
language plugins.

Looking in some of the PDE related views, there is Plugin view, a Plugin
Registry view, and Plugin Depedency view. These all seem almost exactly
alike. What is the difference between these?

Can someone provide some guidance on this with current 3.4.x
configurations? You help would be greatly appreciated.

Eric

What part of Eclipse are you having problems with? If you have many
plugins installed into your IDE, I definitely recommend setting up a target
platform for your project which only contains the plugins you need on
your client (see the Target Platform preferences page).This accelerated the GUI during development for me quite a lot.

Best regards
Marcus
