CPU and memory live charts

Profiling tools in IntelliJ IDEA allow you to view CPU and memory live charts for running processes. They visualize resource consumption on your computer and are helpful for analyzing performance problems in real time.

For example, you can view the charts for another application and see the amount of resources it consumes when running a specific task.

  1. From the main menu, select View | Tool Windows | Profiler.
