Task Monitor, and background I/O tasks

To improve responsiveness and perceived performance, jEdit executes all buffer input/output tasks asynchronously. Plugins should do the same. When a task such as this is in progress, the status bar should display the number of running tasks and an icon that spins. If you do not see this, you can add the widget from the the section called “The Status Bar Pane”.

The Utilities>Troubleshooting> Task Monitor command displays a window with more detailed status information and progress meters for each task. By default, the Task Monitor is shown in a floating window. This window can be docked using the commands in its top-left corner popup menu; see the section called “Window Docking Layouts”. Tasks can be aborted in this window, however note that aborting a buffer save can result in data loss.
