Lots of stopped daemons

I am using gradle 7.2 in IntelliJ. Oftentimes it takes a long time to build the model. When I run “gradle --status”, it reports something on the order of 49 stopped daemons. Is this normal? Does this signal a memory or other kind of resource problem? Would would be my next steps to debug, if any?

Gradle will spawn a new daemon if none of the existing daemons match the criteria for the task (eg memory requirements, environment variables etc). Perhaps you have a random number (or the current time) as an environment variable somehow?

Do you have org.gradle.daemon=false in your gradle.properties file? See disabling the daemon
