PhpStorm limit resource usage

I’ve been having problems with my OBS streams lagging when using PHPStorm, here are my attempts to limit memory and CPU usage:

Limit memory usage

Help -> Change Memory Settings

Also, the value is in the config file listed under “Limit CPU Usage”

Limit CPU usage

I was unable to find the “setting” here, but I was able to edit the config file:

Edit the file: ~/.config/JetBrains/[jetbrains_product]/[product_x64].vmoptions
– or – go to Help -> Edit Custom VM Options


Editing the Registry

Got to: Help -> Find Action -> Type “registry” -> Click the Registry

I’m attempting to reduce the thread pool size to reduce the CPU load when indexing files and other tasks.

Maybe I will also try editing the caches.scanningThreadsCount value next
