Hi. I have a long time using Titanium Studio and recently switched to Appcelerator Studio. I don't remember that issue happened with TiStudio before, may be introduced by Ti SDK 4.0.0.GA. Summary: after some test application runs you may notice your system's UI getting slower as a whole system performance as well. Using Mac OS X 10.10 to develop iPhone apps. I checked free RAM -- it had near 2 GB. I noticed that may be related to CLI which spawn several similar heavy processes listed below:
Air-Bobr:app bobr$ ps aux |grep node
bobr            41531  93,9  0,3  3049324  25064   ??  R    11:00     0:00.64 node /Users/bobr/.appcelerator/install/4.0.1/package/bin/appc-ti info -o json -t ios --no-colors --no-progress-bars --no-prompt --prompt-type socket-bundle --prompt-port 57482 --username <redacted> --password <redacted>
bobr            41530  10,2  0,8  3074584  68588   ??  S    10:59     0:03.07 /usr/local/bin/node /Users/bobr/.appcelerator/install/4.0.1/package/bin/appc ti info -o json -t ios --no-colors --no-progress-bars --no-prompt --no-banner --prompt-type socket-bundle --prompt-port 57482 --username <redacted> --password <redacted>
bobr            41533   0,3  0,0  2443012    664 s001  R+   11:00     0:00.01 grep node
bobr            41529   0,0  0,3  3049328  24444   ??  S    10:59     0:00.71 node /usr/local/bin/appcelerator ti info -o json -t ios --no-colors --no-progress-bars --no-prompt --no-banner --prompt-type socket-bundle --prompt-port 57482 --username <redacted> --password <redacted>
I tried to run them manually and see they using full CPU capacity. They spawned from time to time. Not sure if that may be the same process listed several times in one ps aux run. *That may be some error in CLI which starts to spawn that process several times in a row*. After restarting of Appcelerator Studio all goes better again and no slowdown even if application run in the Simulator same time.

    Definitely related to CLI-747 , so, possibly fixed.
