Re: [eclipse-dev] Mouse movement increases significantly the heap memory?

Have you tried analyzing the heap with MAT ?

I noticed that the Eclipse heap increases significantly if I move the
mouse to other parts. Attached an animated gif of this behavior.

You can activate the heap via Preferences -> General -> "Show heap status".

Anyone knows why this happens? If not, any suggestion how I can find
the responsible code (via freely available tools)?
