OS X :: Memory Usage Not Going Past 70 Percent

Mar 20, 2010

My iMac has 4Gb RAM and this morning I had a problem with the blued process chewing up memory even though Bluetooth was off and I don't ever use it. After a bit of searching I found the probable cause. Anyway, whilst looking at the above issue, my system was really crawling but the memory usage wasn't over 70% and CPU usage was low too. The swap space usage had jumped up to 4Gb and all the time I was opening new Safari windows researching the issue. The system was getting more and more sluggish and the swap usage was growing but memory usage stayed at 70%. Why wouldn't it use the last 30%?

OS X :: Virtual Memory Usage On Leopard - How To Increase It

Nov 22, 2008

I have a unibody Macbook 2.4 with 4GB RAM, running the latest version of Leopard (10.5.5). In activity monitor, I see each process has uses virtual memory of over half a gig, with a total VM size of over 40GB. Is this normal? Is all this virtual memory eating space on my hard disk? Why does each process require so much virtual memory? Is all the software on my Macbook, bloatware?

The attachments show what I am saying. Do others also have similar VM statistics?how to increase memory size

MacBook Pro :: Finding Memory Usage For 13"

May 24, 2010

So I finally went to the Apple Store and got my very first Mac, a MacBook Pro 13" .

Anyways, I got the baseline configuration that came with 4 GB of memory. Playing with the Activity Monitor, I noticed that after awhile of using the computer, the green "free" memory piece of the pie becomes progressively smaller until it's almost gone. Does that mean I have no more free memory left? But I'm not running a lot of programs at once. Just Safari and iTunes, maybe Pages too.

MacBook Pro :: Excessive Wired Memory Usage?

Feb 17, 2012

I have a 2010 MacBook Pro with an 2.66 GHz i7 processor, 8 G-Byte of RAM and a 500 G-Byte hard drive with plenty of free space and am running OS X 10.7.3 . Whenever I run a Windows 7 Pro virtual machine under Parallels 7, ~ 6 G-Byte of wired memory is used. I have allocated 4 G-Byte of memory to the virtual machine. I would expect plenty of free space and that used to be the case but no longer. I am tired of an unresponsive machine and spinning beach-balls.

PowerPC :: 3GB Ram Is Running Super Slow And Memory Usage Is Almost Maxed?

Apr 27, 2008

I recently bought a Power Mac G5 with 3 20" cinema displays, each with their own video card. I've since stopped using one and it sped up some. But even with the most simple tasks, it is hella slow and freezes sometimes. If I just have Firefox and iTunes open, it runs slow and the fans kick in overdrive. The main video card is an ATI Radeon x800 with 256 RAM and the other is a 9200 with 128 RAM. how to free up my RAM and speed it up?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Image Editing Programs - Heavy Memory Usage?

Jun 15, 2012

I am wondering whether the memory use I see is common to the Mac OS X - touted as the graphics pros choice - it's seems anything but to me.  I have a mid 2010 iMac 27" 3.2 GHz Intel Core i312 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 (just upgraded in the hope that it would improve the problem - it didn't)ATI Radeon HD 5670 512 MBMac OS X Lion 10.7.4  That spec should be more than ample.  No.  Pixelmator uses up to 5GB yes - GB) just opening the app.  If I dare to open an actual image - let's say a 120mb jpg for editing - the memory usage is even higher - usually resulting in the image not opening at all.  GIMP is similar, but not as extreme - opening the file uses around 2GB.  Nevertheless, both of the above seem to me to be examples of excessive memory usage.  Certainly, my machine slows to a crawl when doing anything related to images?

May 27, 2012

My wife has an Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook with Leopard 10.5.8. We've run the software update. We've run repair disk permissions. We've restarted the computer. But despite all of that, her virtual memory usage is really high compared to my computer. Each process is using from approximately 600 - 1100 MB of virtual memory. She has 12 GB of free space on her hard drive, but her computer has been running slower lately and has had the low startup disk space warning.

OS X Mavericks :: About This Mac - Disc Usage Wrong

Aug 25, 2014

In short I have a 480GB SSD by OWC. The audio alone, according to "About This Mac", is over 581.14GB... Something is obviously not adding correctly. 

I must admit, I had a couple of iPods that I downloaded music from to a VMware running Mac OS 10.9.4. The host OS is something that I can't mention...

I used the Hudini for Mac on the 10.9.4 WMware OS to unhide the music. 

Since I noticed this disc usage inaccuracy. I've deleted most of the music. Because at one point it was showing over 1TB for the audio.

I've also did a command R at start up and ran Disc Permission and Repair.

I also turned off Time Machine, reboot, turned TM back on, reboot. (Someone else had the opposite disc usage and this worked.) 

My next thought is to delete the Mac OS 10.9.4 via VMware, as this was where I originally downloaded the music from an iPod. I went through the music and transferred over to the host OS the selection that I wanted to keep. When I Get Info on the music app via Mac OS X ssd ▸ Users ▸ KOT ▸ Music ▸ iTunes ▸ iTunes Media it comes up with a little over 17GB.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Check Internet Download Usage

Aug 22, 2014

In the last week, I have been using daily ±5GB of data.  Usually I used ± 500MB.  When I use Netflix, I understand that my usage can increased dramtically, but when I don't, how can I explain my usage ?  My ISP tells me that he cannot give me any clue, because my usage is confidential. 

What can I do about that ?  Can I install a software to check this and to be sure that nobody else is using my internet connection ?

OS X :: Safari Versus Firefox RAM Usage

Feb 18, 2006

I'm sure you've all read about the Firefox memory leak brouhaha. Firefox 1.5+ is supposed to suck down memory like there is no tomorrow.

Someone made this challenge:

[URL]

"If you keep opening tabs in Firefox � say, more than 10 or 15 � the browser starts to slow to a crawl. See how many tabs you can open, but participate at your own risk! Oh, and uh... be sure to save all of your work first."

Well I ran that test. I opened 33 tabs in FF 1.5.01 on my iBook (see sig). FF doesn't bat an eyelash, no slowdown whatsoever.

MacBook :: CPU Usage Very High Just Using Safari/firefox?

Mar 6, 2009

The HD crashed about 2 years ago, and since the replacement (TOSHIBA MK6034GSX 60GB) the CPU will go very hot 80+C and the fan going to 6200rpm if visiting some internet pages. Normally a problem if (when) the kids are playing free online games or visiting youtube or similar. Made a screenshot, notice CPU usage around 112%, smartfan showing 70C and 6200rpm. I have taken the mac physically apart and cleaned the cooling duct and applyed new thermal paste. Didn't help. It drives me crazy, I hate noisy computers.

Safari :: Slow System Response Due To Its Web Content CPU Usage

Jun 18, 2012

I have about 200 Tabs open and a DSL line. Safari Web Content frequently uses near or more than 100% of my CPU time, and the computer runs dead slow.

How can I modify Web Content so that it does not refresh tabs in the background?

Maybe I can at least get a "toggle" to control when it tries to access that huge junk server at "url..." ?Right now its taking over 30 seconds to respond to clicks, and then the same sort of delay before drawing the new screen.
