Re: Eclipse running out of memory, or..?

    I run Fedora Eclipse with an UML plugin. Very often Eclipse seems to be
    stuck in some sort of loop where the java VM is using appr. 50% CPU
    (dual core = 100% of one core?). The result is that Eclipse shuts down
    after a few minutes. (This happens with ArgoEclipse and Omondo
    EclipseUML Community Edition)


This sounds to me like a bug in the Eclipse distribution you are using or a bug in the UML plugin. You would have better luck asking this question in a forum for the Eclipse distriubtion or plugin. This mail list is for the Fedora Linux distribution. Your problem is definitely not caused by Fedora.

    I have found some advice suggesting I should try to increase the VM's
    memory, but they use flags with the java... command used to run the
    normal Eclipse. I have not figured out how to do this with Fedora
    Eclipse.


I start Eclipse using a shell script where I set up the environment variables and vm arguments before calling the Eclipse executable.

Thank you for the answer!

You might be right in the cause for the behaviour, and if I used the pure Eclipse.org version of Eclipse, I would have placed the question there.

But I am using the Fedora version of Eclipse, which is a precompiled version using the java stack included with Fedora, and since it is precompiled, I don't have access directly to the java VM used, thus I can't use a startup script as you suggested. Because of this there should be some means by which I could configure the memory usage and possibly other things regarding that VM. I have not as yet found any conclusive info on where that configuration is done in the Fedora version of Eclipse. Or am I completely confused here?

If I find that this is not a memory related issue, then I will go the road you outlined, but right now I would be greatful for this information.
