More than 1000 MB. I wasn't tracking it before and I assume it was less than that, and everything was working smoothly.
It started raising my attention when I realize that everything was too slow.

Thanks for your reply
Set -Xmx1g to make sure it stays within that gigabyte required
e.g. javac takes some 300MB, while ecj 100MB, so consumption is well justified

How do I set this
Set -Xmx1g to make sure it stays within that gigabyte required
in netbeans.conf
there is a heap of -J-XX parameters
check for -J-Xmx, replace if present, add if not present, restart netbeans
