Mac Pro :: 2XRaid 32GB Cache V.s 3XRaid 16GB Cache?

Mar 22, 2008

I need to populate the bays of my new MacPro 2.66 with 5GB RAM. The stock HD turns out to be a Seagate 250GB HD ST3250820A. I've found them online and wonder if I just should RAID three or four of them as opposed to one Seagate 500GBs or 750 with 32GB cache? These would all be a Raid run by Apple software not a RAID card.

Mac Pro :: Samsung Spinpoint 32mb Cache F1 Vs Seagate Barracuda 32mb Cache

Jan 26, 2008

Which one of these 500gb drives is better? I've been browsing Newegg for two hours now reading reviews. The Seagate drives seem to come with bad firmware that causes performance and cache recognition issues. The Samsung drives have a high failure rate. Whats the real deal? Has anyone here had any bad experiences with either drives?

MacBook :: Impact Of L2 / L3 Cache On Design / Drafting Purposes?

Jul 15, 2009

I am curious to know if L2/L3 cache impacts the performance of a macbook being used for Design and Drafting purposes. Of course this involves retrieving and real-time changes that will be made on a server and/or the macbook itself. Secondly, how significant will the functioning depend between a 3mb and a 4mb L2/L3 cache?

Mac Mini :: Different Cache Speeds - Put More RAM

Jul 6, 2010

I have a Mac Mini Core Duo 1.66. Macs are VERY expensive here, and I know I cannot change my crappy Intel 950GMA video card. So What else can I do? I've read about people using Core 2 Duo processors, which one is the best I could get for my Mini? The processors aren't that expensive here, but there's the fact that a lot of them use different cache speeds. Also, with another processor, could I put more RAM in it, since my mini is limited to 2GB (it came with 512MB and I replaced it with 2 after 1 week). Anyone could tell me which is the best processor I could put in such a machine, since I'm stuck with this stupid video card and answer me if I can use more RAM if I upgrade the processor?

OS X :: Why Deleting Program Cache Speed It Up

Nov 19, 2009

World of Warcraft was taking 5 to 10 minutes to load, I had no idea what the problem was then a Guildie suggested deleting the cache files in my library folder. I deleted them and miraculously everything was fixed. So why does deleting cache files speed up a program? I would have though it would slow down or even break a program.

Software :: Recover L3 Cache From 16/64 Horror?

Oct 24, 2008

According to Mac Hardware Test L3 cache of Quicksilver 1ghz DP seems to fail in some way (Post 16/64)
causing my G4 to hang before finishing boot process.

My questions: - Does this occur on 1 of 2 processors or both?

The test gives no clue as to which processor causes problems - Can I resolve this myself?

Maybe by removing the faulted processor, ordisabling/bypassing L3 cache - If not, which part do I need to replace?

Hopefully not the entire logic board..?

Safari Not Clearing Cache Consistently

Mar 3, 2012

Safari 5.0.5. MacOS 10.6.8..I am developping complex HTML+JavaScript. I notice that after a while (~30 mn) Safari does not clear its cache and re-uses old JS scripts. I have caches disabled in the development menu. Clearing cache or reinitialize Safari from the Safari menu is of no help.Only way is to delete the cache.db file in Libray/cache/, exit Safari, empty trash, then relaunch !

OS X :: Restore Browser Cache Using Time Machine?

Sep 29, 2010

I've found myself in a position where I need to restore my browser history and cache. I've got time machine backups that I can use, but I can't figure out how to do it.

For Firefox, I thought it would just has easy as restoring the folder found in ~/Home/Library/Application Support/Firefox from TM, but that doesn't seem to do the trick. I need to be able to get to the cache and not just the history to get some files that I hope got stored locally.

Also, I'm wondering if I can do this same thing for Safari. There are some files that I hope got stored locally that aren't available anymore.

IMac :: How To Access & Clear Library Cache

Oct 28, 2010

My iMac 24 has been acting just a tiny bit sluggish of late, seeing the pinwheel a few times. All the reading I've gone through suggests two possibilities; overloaded cache or a HDD that's starting to go south. Hmmmm. OK, so exactly how do I get to the so-called "Library Caches" and which folders do I delete. Next, is there a good diagnostic tool that will give me layman's language results that a consumer/user can understand? And lastly, if the HDD is going south and my iMac is long past warranty... can I; (A) replace the HDD myself, and (B) can I upgrade the drive size (currently 500G) to a 1TB drive? My machine currently has 4 Gigs of RAM and I guess that's all it can handle right? Wish I could upgrade that!

I did clear my safari cache and saw a decent pickup in speed.

OS X :: Cache Windows AD Login Credentials Offline

Apr 15, 2009

I'm the Network Admin for my company and our Marketing Director just got a new MB Pro. I've used directory services and he can sign in and authenticate with his Windows AD credentials with no issue as well as access all resources. Problem is he travels a lot and needs to be able to login off of our internal network. Windows will cache login creds for offline logins. Is there a way to allow this in OS X also?

Mac Pro :: 32 MB Cache In 1 TB Hard Disk In Early 2009 MP?

May 17, 2009

If you bought an Early 2009 Mac Pro with the 1 TB hard disk drive, what is the brand and model? I am most interested in knowing if the 1 TB HDD is a 32 MB cache or a 16 MB cache.

I believe if you get your Mac Pro with the 640 KB HDD it's only with a 16 MB cache.

Mac Pro :: Mac Pro Woodcrest 3.0GHz, Original HDD Cache, Boot ROM, Bus, Host

Oct 26, 2010

For several years now, daily, I've ran through a number of different HDD's under relatively stable (although hard-working) conditions (Seagate, WD, and now Hitachi). None of them ever crashed until recently (WDD Caviar Black 640MB). But there have regularly been periods of time (before that) in the past when I would hear what sounded like sharp-twang on Shutdown - like a noise from a toy ray-gun or something. It's happened a few other times in the past, although an HDD has never failed shortly thereafter.

Applications :: Safe To Delete Final Cut Pro Cache Folders?

Dec 1, 2008

So I have created a video presentation for a project I am working on using Final Cut Pro. I noticed Final Cut Pro creates a default folder in Documents called "Final Cut Pro Documents." This folder contains six additional folders:

1. Audio Render Files
2. Autosave Vault
3. Capture Scratch
4. Render Files
5. Thumbnail Cache Files
6. Waveform Cache Files

Is it safe to delete these six folders? I wouldn't otherwise care, but collectively they are taking up 25 GB on my HD. I'm not planning to delete the actual FCP project files and their attached media, but rather the above six folders which appear to be cache? Do I run any risk of losing my entire presentation if I delete these six folders, or is it simply a matter of just re rendering my project if I delete them?

OS X :: FileVault And Home Directories - Unencrypted Info In Cache?

Just a quick question about FileVault. We all know about Firefox and Safari's caches. Are they stored in the users home directory? If a laptop is stolen and the home directory is encrypted, I want to make sure somebody can't look in the cache and get whatever information is sitting there unencrypted. When a user shuts down and FV is enabled, what (if anything) is not encrypted for that user?

I have a problem. I have installed Leopard on a partition on my MacBook. When install successfully completed, my Macbook restarted but it hangs and does not restart so I had to switch the power off by the power button. I then switched my MacBook back on to complete registration and finally got into Leopard.I then updated using Software Update and then restarted but it will not restart. When I try to restart i get presented with a window telling me that "Updating Boot Cache". I then click "OK" but it hangs on the desktop wallpaper and pointer. I have tried to leave my MacBook for half an hour but it is still hanging on the desktop wallpaper and pointer. Same thing happens with Shutdown
