OS X Mavericks :: Can't Stop Finder Web Content In Activity Monitor

Aug 26, 2014

Imac/Mavericks running super-slow for months. Activity Monitor shows "Finder Web Content" is the CPU hog. It also always shows that it's "not responding." Other threads say to quit process, which I do, but it pops right back up. I do use Safari, but Word is closed. Any clues?

OS X Mavericks :: Activity Monitor File Cache

Aug 20, 2014

In activity monitor it shows that I have 16GB of physical memory, 12.77 GB used memory, 16GB virtual memory.

It also shows App memory 1.9GB, FILE CACHE 9.56GB and wired memory 1.31GB. 

My question is in regards to file cache at 9.56GB.  What is file cache and why is it so high?  Does this mean I should install more memory?  I looked file cache up and I think it's memory that has been used but is not being used currently, it's waiting to be used again.  Not sure if that's right though, or what it really means.

OS X Mavericks :: Kernel Task Using 1.03GB RAM In Activity Monitor?

Aug 20, 2014

I  have a 13inch MBP running Mavericks 10.9.4 with a 2.7 GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 500GB HD. I just recently had the machine Factory Reset. The only APP's I've added are PAGES, NUMBERS and KEYNOTE.  When I check the ACTIVITY MONITOR it indicates that out of 16GB of RAM MEMORY, 5.51GB is being used. Usually ACTIVITY MONITOR indicates that as much as 9GB RAM is being used. This MBP is 3 years old and I clearly upgraded the RAM from 4GB (I think) to 16GB. Since this MBP used to run with only 4GB of RAM total; it seems to me that the current amount of memory being used, from 5.51GB up to 9GB out of 16GB total RAM is unusually high. In addition, the above numbers were displayed when only Safari and Activity Monitor are running. Is this normal for Mavericks OSX?

OS X Mavericks :: Activity Monitor Window Won't Stay Hidden At Login

Aug 22, 2014

I recently upgraded to Mavericks. I have Startup Items set to launch Activity Monitor and have the Hide checkbox checked, but the window keeps appear at login.

All of the other apps set in a similar manner work just fine (i.e., they start and their windows say hidden) ... Why Hide does not mean "Hide" for this one app?

OS X Mavericks :: 10.9.3 - How To Stop Finder Sliding Off Screen

Jun 22, 2014

I'm using a new MacBook Pro running Mac OS X Mavericks Version 10.9.3.The behaviour I want to change happens when I have a Finder window maximised.  

If I open a file in the open folder, the finder "slides" offscreen, to the right, as the file opens. When I close the file, instead of the Finder window I see the desktop. 

If I'm working through a folder with lots of file I have to check or alter, this is a massive waste of time. How to change the settings so that Finder simply stays open?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mac.com Incoming Activity Wheel Won't Stop Spinning

Jun 15, 2012

For a couple of days now the activity wheel on my incoming iCloud/mac.com mailbox won't stop spinning.Mail seems 'extra' active in Activity Monitor but I cannont discern what it is doing very long log file with no obvious crashes or repeating patterns (to my amateur eye).There is no send/receive activity indicated in the Mail Activity pane of Mail just the wheel spinning constantly in my mac.com inbox.I seem to receive all the mail sent to that account so nothing obvious being blocked or missing just the constant activity.

I've rebuilt the mailbox but that didn't help.It has been fine up to a couple of days ago and I've not sent nor received any odd or very large files.

OS X :: Activity Monitor - Should I Increase RAM?

Jan 10, 2011

I'm not sure if this is cause for concern but it seems like my "free" memory has been really low as of late.

I use Safari and Mail 90% of the time. The other 10% is occasional iTunes use, MPlayer use, and Preview use. Is it time for me to upgrade to 4 GB of RAM?

Note - I do use the following extensions in Safari: AdBlock and YouTube5.

OS X :: Looking For CPU Usage In Activity Monitor

Sep 18, 2009

So maybe what I am looking for is in the activity monitor, but I just can't find it. I always see people on here posting screen shots of their CPU usage. If they have a quad core machine then there are four columns with blue in it showing the usage. Where can I find this in OS X, or is this a 3rd party program?

OS X :: Activity Monitor Not Responding

Nov 5, 2009

Im running SL (updated of course) on my MacBook Pro 4,1. Im fairly new to Macs and to be honest I didnt even know about Activity Monitor till very recently. So I figured I would check out whats going on with my system and fire it up. Activity Monitor does not respond. It starts to open but then sits at this screen with a beach ball...

After a while I usually just Force Quit. Ive ran Onyx recently as well as Disk Repair and everything seems ok.

Safari :: Stop Its Content From Wobbling?

Apr 28, 2012

In Lion, there is this insipid wobbling of the page's view (programmer terms, I know) when the page has no scroll bars (scrolling set to always on) and you use the magic mouse's center point to finger scroll up. The "view" scrolls away from the top left corner to display nothing, then snaps back. As I am a leftie and I EXPECT the scrolling to STOP AT THE END OF THE SCROLL REGION, how do I burn this setting to NEVER EVER DO THIS. It is distracting and useless and irritating. this even happens witn an empty page. I never ever want my UIScrollView's content to allow the content's view pane to drag away form the edges that contain it. This didn't happen in Snow Leopard and my Mac with a 27 inch screen and a 17 inch screen is not an iOS device.Is there a pList setting for Safari that will allow the UIScrollView.bounces to = 0 or UIScrollView.elasticty = 0? Can I edit the Framework header in /Library/Frameworks to set the default to NEVER for all epplications?  I can't use Lion with this is happening all the time I mistakenly trigger a scroll with my middle finger using the Magic mouse.

OS X :: Process NOT Quit Via Activity Monitor

Nov 26, 2010

A while back I installed an application that allowed me to stream media from my Mac to my PS3, called Gridcast. It didn't work well, so I got rid of it. Since then I have had two processes constantly running, "gridcastd" & "GridCastAlerts." When i select and quit the processes nothing happens, they just continues to run.

OS X :: CPU Meter In Activity Monitor All Wrong?

Dec 11, 2010

According to the screenshot, both Users (green) and System (red) uses 0,19% CPU each. Which means that idle (black) should be around 99%, which it clearly isn't. If I check each process individually, none is using more than 1% of CPU. The screenshot is taken after a reboot and I don't use and third-party background services like VMWare. It's Mac Pro 2.66 Quad (2009).

OS X :: Activity Monitor - Process Names

Jun 30, 2009

I've got the activity monitor open in front of me. There are the usual apps I can see, Logic, FF, iTunes, Finder, MS Messenger etc etc. Though there is a lot of other stuff, I don't know what it is (probably system stuff?). For instance there is configd, syslogd, mds, cron most of these have root inb the server column. In the User column for my name I can see mdworker, pboard, launchd and couple of others.

OS X :: How To Change Activity Monitor Icon

Jul 26, 2009

I have recently tried changing the Activity Monitor Icon by using Candybar, for some reason Candybar does not have a Activity monitor in the menu. I have than went to Activity monitor application which is on the desktop and clicked on " show package contents" + "resources" and dragged the original activity monitor icon to a random folder and dragged a new icon into the resources folder. I logged out and logged back in and now the icon did now show up, there is a application icon now.

I have dragged the new icon out and put the old one back in the folder to see if it would go back to its original icon and now it does not go back to how it was in the first place, so pretty much no icon exists but only a application icon shows but the program does open up. Another thing I dont understand is why I could not see a Activity Monitor Icon in the CandyBar program, I am not sure how to change the Icon or how people change it or why they have modified activity monitor icons is you cant change it.

OS X :: IStat Reading Different From Activity Monitor

Sep 15, 2009

Using SL. I installed iStat and it reports less "wired memory" being used than Activity Monitor. Right now iStat reports: 449MB wired, 515MB active, 364MB inactive and 2.45 GB free. Activity Monitor reports: 706MB wired, 515 MB active, 364MB inactive and 2.45 GB free. Also, our school macs are at a whopping 100MB wired, whereas I'm always above 500MB.

OS X :: Activity Monitor Disappeared / Have To Reinstall?

Dec 16, 2009

The computer, Mac 10.4 Tiger, sent a message that my Startup drive is almost full. I tried to do the best to make more space available and inadvertently must have done something to the files of the Activity monitor. The next morning when I turned the computer on, it went up in smoke, i.e., disappeared and cannot be found in 'applications'.

Do I have to reinstall? Can I reinstall just for the Activity Monitor or ?

OS X :: Hidden Process Running Under Activity Monitor

Jan 1, 2011

I just found a 'hidden' process running in Activity Monitor. If it weren't for the indication of 64 bit under virtual memory, I wouldn't have noticed anything. This is the first time that I've ever seen a 64 bit process running with root privileges. On top of that, it's hidden. Whenever I try to quit or even force quit it, it comes back. Should I be concerned? I'm little worried right now. This wouldn't have any relation to the sudden loss of several fonts that occurred a few days ago, would it? (I lost Century Gothic)

OS X :: Makewhatis And Find Processes In Activity Monitor

Nov 29, 2008

I just woke up my MacBook Pro, and the HD sounded like there was something going on. It wasn't the indexing, so I opened up Activity Monitor and found something taking 10-30% CPU called "find". It was under several instances of "sh", and I think it's first parent was "locate.code" or something like that. Anyway, after a while I opened Activity Monitor again, and the "find" process was replaced by something called "makewhatis". It disappeared almost a second after I opened Activity Monitor. Obviously it's just part of the system, but what exactly do these processes do?

I was checking out my Activity Monitor the other day and I have noticed this before. I have 4GB in my MacBook Pro and updated to SL and now AM is only showing that I have 3.75GB. I figured maybe it was just an error and I have shut my MBP off and it still hasn't changed.
