IB TWS: Optiontrader freezes up TWS frequently

  1. When loading optiontrader with a symbol with plenty of strikes (ie CL, USO, SPY, ES) I have an easy time locking up TWS to the point I have to force quit and restart to get it back to working order. Seems to be too much data coming in. Even if I can close the window, TWS is perilously slow until I kill it and restart.

    Is there a memory allocation setting that I need to bump up to avoid this? Or upgrade to a latest java? etc...

    running all the latest versions.
