Windows 7 Flagship x64 Chinese Version
CPU is Intel i7 3.40G, just one core, 8G physical memory

I have increased heap memory to 4096M,when I import "$ISABELLE_HOME/src/HOL/Analysis/Analysis.thy" into a new theory file,
though it's very slow, but it doesn't get stuck and finishes importing.

When it loads my theory file, it still gets stuck and I find there are many  heap memory not used,
 like 1104/1956 displayed at the right-bottom of the window.

I think there should be some problem with my theory file,  not the problem of the memory.

Anyway, I appreciate  your reply. Thank you.

It seems the system is just not responding. CPU usage is about 40-50%, memory is about 1.5G-3G. I have tried windows64 version 2016-1 and 2017, there's the same problem. The following is the screeshot

This is odd and normally should not happen -- unless there is a huge
waste of resources somewhere.

* What is your Windows version?
* How many CPU cores do you have?
* How many GB memory do you have?

Does this it also happen with existing library theories? E.g. from
$ISABELLE_HOME/src/HOL/Library/Library.thy or
$ISABELLE_HOME/src/HOL/Analysis/Analysis.thy (which is rather big).

The latter might require more Java resources. For Isabelle2017 on
Windows 64, you can edit $ISABELLE_HOME/Isabelle2017.l4j.ini and grant
more heap space, e.g. replace "-Xmx2560m" by "-Xmx4096m". Restart the
Isabelle application afterwards: Isabelle/jEdit has a Java heap
indicator in the right-bottom corner.

You can also try https://isabelle.sketis.net/devel/release_snapshot as
an early preview of Isabelle2018 -- it has updated versions of Poly/ML
and Java 8, which could make a difference.

Unfortunately, Sledgehammer and some other tools will not work in this
snapshot: Jasmin Blanchette still needs to update various components to
