process monitor log file

opening up the v8.1 ide for a python project with rightly 40 files and leaving the ide idling, there is constant hard disk read and write activity. it just never stops. I have attached a short process monitor log file during which netbeans was the only open app. after sitting for a few minutes there are 34K reads, 5.5K writes and 12,400K I/O other. This seems excessive for an application not doing anything and it impacts other apps and system functions.

Thanks for the log. It looks like the jython files are periodically accessed again and again. This should be investigated in python plugin ( Reassigning.

I have seen this before, intermittently. It seemed to be an interaction with another plugin / language. Will investigate with team.
Thank you for reporting.
