Hi Alex,

Are you using the command line options to start Eclipse with more memory
than the default?

I was having similar problems until I started using the following command
line options on startup.

e.g. I start Eclipse from a shortcut with the following command:

C:\eclipse\eclipse.exe -vmargs -Xmx256m

Good luck

I usually restart eclipse once a day since it seems to leak memory.

When I start eclipse it uses up about 60-70MB and after a day or so of
programming I am up to 120MB and it slows to a crawl.

IBM ThinkPad PIII/900Mh, 512MB RAM, Win2000 SP2, Java 1.3.1_03 and 1.4.0.

I use eclipse 2.0 for java programming (on XP prof., j2sdk1.4.0,
PIII/800Mhz, 384M RAM).

Usually 3-5 times/day eclipse dies (in various moments). It was worse when I

had no swap; now I have 10M swap and it's better..

I suppose it's the JVM+OS combination that produces these results.

Does this happen to you? - What's your PC configuration?

Thank you.
