chromebook xfce eclipse crash

Recently i have been having issues while writing code on my chromebook, wherein eclipse would randomly crash.

In order to debug that, i installed htop. My assumption was that eclipse was running out of memory considering i am running it on a 4GB chromebook running xfce.

There are a lot of plugins on Eclipse which run, which i guess were causing it and i did not have the patience to go thru all of them and remove the ones i did not need. I am sure it was you spell check!! I am sure...

I basically increased the xmx setting in the eclipse.ini file to 1280m and i haven't had any crashes after that. Guessing will go higher if it crashes.

p.s. I am looking to buy a desktop to offload some of the work as i am not sure how sustainable this is.
