How can I see how many resources each Sublime Text plugin is using?


You can open System Monitor and check a process called plugin_host. This is a Sublime Text process containing all the plugin resources of the editor. If you want to see specifically the resource of each plugin, you may want to install this Sublime Text plugin: PackageResourceViewer

    Please note that package resource viewer doesn't display the system resources in use by each plugin. It allows you to inspect and edit package files. Aug 25 '14 at 18:15
  • Cheers for this. I discovered Sublime Text was using a lot of CPU resources not because of a plugin but because it was trying to index the tmp folder of my project. I fixed the problem by configuring folder_exclude_patterns.

  • @AshtonWar, how were you able to figure that out? May 25 '15 at 23:01
  • @AustinHanson Lucky guess. Googled something like "sublime how to exclude folders from ctrl+p" and found this

  • @AshtonWar, I'm glad you had that guess. That was exactly my problem as well. :) Thanks May 27 '15 at 14:09
