MacBook Pro :: Intercheck Process Taking 100%  Of Processor?

May 2, 2012

I have a dual-core MBP, and when i try to run programs like mail, word, and firefox at the same time, the Intercheck process decides to take a lot of my CPU.  Whenever this happens, i have to restart my computer, and if i don't, it will eventually freeze.

OS X :: SH Process - Taking So Much CPU Power

May 12, 2009

So I've been noticing the fans on my MBP were starting to run pretty hard today which never happens. I checked the activity monitor and I have a process called SH (127) that was eating up like 12-15% of CPU. Does anybody know what this process is? Why is it taking so much CPU horsepower?

OS X Yosemite :: Process Bird Taking Up To 140% Of CPU And Running Constantly

Dec 9, 2014

Mac OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite/iMac mid-2011...My iMac is really slow to start-up, to run, and to have applications run. I have 32 GB memory, 113 GB hard disk capacity and it has never been slower in its life. There is a process called "bird" that is running almost constantly whenever I run Activity Monitor and it is taking up to 140% of CPU time. What is "bird"? Why is it running constantly and eating up so much CPU time? Why is my iMac so slow running Mac OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite? 

Other issues on my iMac include: Software Update is supposed to be updating and installing updates automatically and it is not. When I log in, I see a blank white screen with an apple logo and a progress bar below. It takes forever for the progress bar to get 1/4 of the way across, then the screen flashes and the progress bar finishes the remaining 3/4 really fast. And then once logged in, it takes forever for my dock icons to appear, and my iMac hard drive is chattering like crazy even though nothing is running yet. Whenever I launch Safari I get a progress bar in the address field that goes 1/3 of the way across and frequently hangs. All of these issues never happened before Mac OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite.

iMac (27-inch Mid 2011), OS X Yosemite (10.10), Safari 8.0

OS X :: "httpd" Process Taking Up Huge Amounts Of Virtual Memory?

Oct 24, 2008

I just took a quiz online on Blackboard (university online suite for tests/homework/class notes) and I had to accept a trust certificate so a 30 min. limit timer would begin. After finishing the test, I looked in activity monitor and there are 2 processes: httpd(root) and http(_www). They are taking up about 2.6 GB of virtual ram each, and almost all of my physical memory is being used. Also, under the "kind" column, it lists them as Intel (64-Bit). What are these and why will they not disappear when I try to force-quit them?

OS X :: Process "kernel Task" Taking Up Almost 100% Of CPU?

Jul 20, 2010

A few hours ago, I noticed my MBP start hanging and generally processing very slow. Apps would freeze at random times, and generally a lot of odd behavior.

I checked the activity monitor to see what might be causing this. It turns out, the process "kernel_task" is using almost 100% of my CPU. It has stayed within the 70-100% range, and has yet to go down. I tried many things, including restarting my Mac many times, but it remains the same.

Does anyone know why "kernel_task" is taking up so much of my CPU? Is there a way to somehow "reset" the process to get it back to normal?

P.S. I attached a screenshot of the process in the Activity Monitor. You can view it here:

EDIT: I just want to add that I think the "kernel_task" might have started eating CPU when I stopped a RAR program in the middle of extracting an archive. I'm not 100% sure though that this is when the problem started.

OS X :: Re Fsck-hfs Process At Start Up - How To Disable Speed Up Process

Sep 21, 2009

I have a Mac Pro with several raid array and single drives attached (1x Wiebetech RTX600 Raid 5 through SCSI; 1x CalDigit HDElement Raid 5 through miniSAS; 4x internal drives).Unfortunately, due to various reasons (electricity outtage and software crashes), I'm experiencing system crashes and need to hard re-start the system. Upon restart, I am able to boot back into Mac OS X, but sometimes one, or both of the raid arrays will not mount.However, after a period of 0.5 - 2 hours, the array would magically re-appear again. Sometimes this might even happen to internal drives that I had mounted inside the chassis of the Mac Pro.

OS X :: Good Process Explorer Equivalent - Monitor Process CPU And RAM

Feb 26, 2010

I am wondering if anyone knows of a good osx based alternative to Process Explorer on windows - what I'd like to be able to do is graph CPU and memory for a specific process and ideally see what network connections a specific process has open. atMonitor seems to do this pretty well generally, but not for specific processes (this is for monitoring a multiplayer flash game).

MacBook Pro :: Process That Cannot Be 'killed'

Mar 31, 2012

There is a process, "PocketCloudService" that I cannot finish even from terminal (kill PID), the response is "Operation not permitted". I did the same of killing proceses from terminal and it worked, but it doesn't with this process. It belonged to a program that I unistalled, "Pocket Cloud". I reinstalled that program and unistalled again, but the process continues running, even if I restart the mac. It's annoying because sometimes it spends about 80% CPU, warming my mac (and my patience!), therefore I finish the process "PocketCloudService" from Activity Monitor, but it restarts few seconds after. I just want to delete or block the source that launches that process and not have to stop it manually anymore.From activity monitor when I check the process, the main process is "launchd (1)", user: root (0)

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

MacBook Air :: What Sort Of Delays Would I Be Seeing In The Streaming Process

Jan 27, 2009

I reviewed the guide about saving your media on a external drive and accessing it via the Internet and successfully set that up. I have about 700 GBs of space available on that all setup through my AEBS. Would it be possible to store my media (music/movies) on that and stream them from there when I am remotely (i.e. at work, starbucks, etc...). What sort of delays would I be seeing in the streaming process? My connection at home is roughly 7 down and 1.5 upload.

MacBook Pro :: Report Crash Process Using Over 100 Percent Of CPU

Mar 28, 2012

For the past few days my macbook pro (lion 10.7.3) has been overheating and the fan has been going crazy.In my processes, there is one called "report crash" that is consistently using between 50% and 180% of the CPU. I force quit it, but it just comes back straight away.I looked into my logs to see what is causing it and there seems to be a continual launch/crash cycle related to com.apple.midiserver, whatever that is.Does anyone have a clue why the midiserver is fighting to be launched ad infinitum and causing my mac to go berserk?

MacBook :: Have A Process Sending Data To Telkomadsl?

Jul 4, 2012

I have recently discovered that a 'web' process has been sending data to an address which I have identified through VirusBarrier X6 to be "dsl-146-236-157 [URL]"   Over a 2 day period, 1,2gb was sent to this address.  I have since blocked these addresses through the virus scanner, but now I need to delete this process/es from my system.   I do not know how I got this 'process' downloaded, as it is not identified as a virus, malware, trojan etc. My research tells me that this has been seen on windows and other macs, and I want to see how to remove it.

MacBook Pro :: Hangs On Boot Process After Win7 Install

Jul 6, 2009

I have a (check sig) and just tried to install the Windows 7 RC 64-Bit onto a Bootcamp Partition. I had been using the Beta way back, but had cleared that partition in advance for a clean install. With that I had no problems...ran the 7 beta fine alongside OSX. I followed the same procedure I had done for the beta install with RC, following the guide on the internet. Everything seemed to work out peachy, Windows 7 booted fine, I added all my settings again. Then I switched over to OSX to eject the disc, which was fine although the boot in was quite sluggish. I set the boot drive as "Macintosh HD" in System Prefs, and proceeded to try to boot into Windows 7 again....this time it was no go.

The screen came up with the white cursor on black, and then the "Starting Windows" showed, with the animation above it. At some point during the animation, it just froze. My fans were at normal speed and everything. I tried many times, same story. So I thought I would shut down, boot into OSX, and try to erase the partition. That didn't work either. When booting into OSX, the start-up chime sounds with the white screen, then the gray Apple logo shows up....and that's where it stays. I reset the PRAM, no luck. What could be the reason it hangs on BOTH boot processes? Because for a short time they did both work, and I could not have erased my OSX partition or anything because I did boot into it once after installing the Win7 RC. I also can see both partitions when I boot holding Option...

MacBook Air :: System Will Not Restart After Software Update Process

Aug 5, 2009

I was doing the most recent software update today. During the process, it told me to power down. I did and now when I turn on the MBA, I'm only getting a black screen. I have tried a force restart (control-command-power), PRAM reset (command-option-P-R), and the SMC Reset (Shift-Control-Option Power). None of these steps corrected the problem. How I can get my MBA to boot?

MacBook Pro :: Core Duo 3GB RAM / Firmware Flashing Process Work?

Oct 14, 2009

I know that the RAM limit in the MacBook Pro is 2GB. However, this is most definitely not due to hardware limitations. Technically speaking, the CPU and chipset can address up to 3.3GB RAM. I also know that the computer won't boot with more than 2GB in it. I have reason to believe that this is therefore a firmware limitation. Has anybody done any work modding MacBook firmware? I am considering working on this myself, but if anybody has information about how the firmware flashing process works, that would be quite useful. I also would particularly like to know if Apple firmware updates are signed or if anything can be flash into ROM.
