Memory usage increases until NetBeans unusable
Last modified: 2012-02-22 17:31:01 UTC
The memory usage of NetBeans using the plugin starts at about 80MB when then program initially loads, and increases until about 750MB, at which point the program becomes unusable and much be closed and opened.
I have allowed more than enough memory for NetBeans in my configuration file (I have given NetBeans 2GB out of a total of 8GB memory).
