OS X :: Mds (spotlight) Taking Up 128M Of Real Memory

Jun 6, 2005

According to Activity Monitor, the accursed "mds" process is taking up 127.32M of Real Memory, more than kernel_task at 114MB.

I rarely use Spotlight, but it and Dashboard have managed to use up most of my remaining 1GB of RAM. Very disappointing so far.

Dashboard widgets take up an average of about 200MB of Virtual Memory, but I'm hoping those numbers are skewed due to some creative threading.

I wish you could easily turn these guys on and off.

On a related topic, my VM Size is at 9.91 GB. I should logically have at least that much free on my disk, correct?

MacBook :: Time Machine Backup (Size Keeps Growing)

Nov 30, 2009

I haven't backed up my macbook in a couple days since I've been out of town and did not have access to my external hard drive. A little while ago I plugged in the hard drive and told time machine to do a backup. The backup started at around 24GB, which I thought was weird because I didn't change that much. An hour or so later it is still climbing and is at 77.1GB. By the time I finish typing this it will probably be even larger. The weird thing is it says 77.1 of 77.1 but then both numbers just keep simultaneously growing. I'm using a Seagate Desk and bucking up and aluminum unibody macbook running 10.58.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change A User's Stack Memory Limit Setting?

May 1, 2012

Is there any way that the default stack memory limit for a user in Mac OS X Lion?  You can you ulimit in to display information, you cannot change any values. 

This is what is returned from ulimit when you try to change the stack memory size. 

user@MacbookPro:~$ ulimit -s 81920

-bash: ulimit: stack size: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted 

Also, the default value is 8192KB which is approx. 8MB.  That is weak, especially on my 2011 iMac with 16GB of RAM.  I mainly do scientific programming on my Mac (Fortran).  These programs usually require a larger stack size.  One option is to allocate data to the heap but that is very slow.

Applications :: ITunes Library - Growing Out?

Apr 30, 2010

Ever since I downloaded iTunes 9.1 my library has been growing out of control. The only problem is, I haven't added any music to it. It says it's 3,091.80 GB now and tends to get bigger every day. This would be a minor nuisance were it not accompanied by other problems (recently added music disappearing, library file error messages, etc.). Has anybody dealt with anything like this?

Hardware :: Growing Pile Of Dead External Drives

Sep 13, 2009

I've got several drives that have died over the last year or so. I've got six or seven drives hooked up to my iMac that I use for storage, backing up etc, and it seems like one just dies every six months or so. Maybe one a year. What happens is it suddenly doesn't show up on the desktop anymore, and it never stops churning. I try connecting any of these dead drives to another one of our macs, macbook pro, etc, but it behaves the same way.

Is there anything to be done about this? I'm thinking of getting a Drobo system, rather than buying new drives so often. Is there any special software for dealing with drives in a state like this? Or a place you can take them to to see if they can be fixed? (I have all the data backed up, so that's not an issue. I've called the manufacturer (lacie) but I think they're all out of warrantee, though they're only a couple of years old.

Windows On Mac :: VMWare Virtual Machine (XP) Size Growing?

Mar 2, 2010

I have just installed Windows XP with VMWare Fusion (2.0.6) and every time I shut down VMWare and check the size of the virtual machine back in Finder in OS X (Snow Leopard) it has grown by 2GB or so. Why is it doing this and how can I stop it? (It's now 8GB+ even though there is no software installed on the Windows side). I am running these on a late 2007 iMac.

IMac (Intel) :: Amount Being Backed Up By Time Machine Keeps Growing During Full Backup?

Dec 6, 2014

After some problems with Time Machine backup, I removed a bunch of stuff from my internal hard drive, reformatted my external HD used for backups, and started a new full backup.  Time Machine has been running for about 24 hours and gives me a status of Backing up: xx GB of yy GB.  Both xx and yy keep growing (apace) so that I don't believe xx will ever equal yy.   

To cryptic?  Here are real numbers.  My internal disk being backed up contains 469.39 GB.  Backup status now says Backing up: 685.78GB of 754.42 GB.  Both numbers just keep growing. I'm happy to let Time Machine overnight (again) but, really, this can't be normal.

OS X :: The Application Pub Sub Agent Quit Unexpectedly?

Nov 17, 2007

Since downloading 10.5.1, I have had the message below pop up about every half hour. Almost every time, I click "Report...." to send to failure to Apple. I have also tried clicking "Relaunch," but that done nothing to fix the problem. Half an hour later, the popup comes back again. It has happened now more times than I can count. I have tried to research what this application is, but to no avail. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this or to at least get rid of the pop up?

MacBook :: Palmrest Real Warm Up?

Nov 4, 2009

On my second macbook and notice a difference in this one as opposed to the first one (although in all fairness i didn't use my first one all that much as i had to return it because of bad vibrations). I have no programs running and all I'm doing is lightly browsing the web (craigslist, macrumors, gamefaqs). My temps are 42C and approx. 1801rpm. I think this is normal, but my palmrest really warms up. Not to the point I can not use the notebook...just wondering if this is normal...

Jan 9, 2011

turning on the Seagate HDD that I have, I have been using it in Windows with Mac Drive where it is usually picked up (although says it is bad but OS X didn't so IDK if it was or Mac Drive is pissing around) but it works now today the drive won't turn on, no light no nothing Is there a way to find out if it is actually dead as if I have lost my work (all my college work, iTunes, pictures etc etc) I will go ****ing mental as I'd have lost $500 and ?100 odd iTunes (most was backed up on a previous drive which also died (WD though)') and un-replacable documents/pictures.

OS X Server :: Backup Exec Agent Not Responding?

Mar 21, 2006

I'm using a Mac OS X Server ver 10.4.3 and I've installed the Veritas MacOS X agent for remote backup called "be_agnt.tar".

We have been able to run succesful backups for some time now (Using Backup Exec 9.1 for Windows Servers installed on a win2k server) but a few days ago I applied a service pack to the backup exec software (SP4) and now I can't connect to the remote agent from my backup exec server.

This is only true for backups and restores since I still can make selections of what data to backup thru the agent.
