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).

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Disable Yellow Highlight During Search Process

Jun 21, 2012

This is not a question about the highlight color that you set in system preferences.When you search for text, the found text jumps out at you in blaring yellow, all too literally in your face. This was useful when they first introduced it in Safari-- but now it's all over the OS. In a text editor, where the search result might be a whole paragraph, it's agonizing. It's getting to where I have to look away from the screen when I hit Search, and wait a moment for the color to die down. Isn't there any way to disable it? It hurts my eyes.I found a thread from pretty exactly two years ago asking the same question:[url]

Software :: Slow Printing - Any Way To Speed Up Process

May 20, 2010

We have a Mac here running 10.5 and users are complaining about how long it takes to print (by comparison to Windows) and if there's any way to speed it up. Unlike the Windows machines which go to a print server, OS X prints directly to the printer. The types of documents they're printing are large, so either big graphics or multiple copies consisting of lots of text/pictures.

By my understanding what's happening is the printer waits until the entire job has spooled before it starts to print. Which makes me wonder if there's a OS X equivalent to the Windows option "start printing immediately". I've been looking around Google etc but haven't found much. Having said that I'm a Windows admin so I could be heading down the wrong track.

OS X :: Cannot Start New Process After Software Update Frozen

Aug 12, 2009

I got a message to install the latest security update, but the updater froze when I told it to install. Now I cannot start any new applications or processes (activities like copying files, emptying trash, etc. don't work) The apps which were running before are still working (but once closed, will not re-open) I dare not restart or put the computer to sleep. (Possibly software update freezing was a symptom rather than the cause - it is consistent with processes failing to start) I guess this means a system file has been corrupted, but without a working copy/paste and no terminal I don't know what I can do about it. All I have is a browser (firefox) and finder running. Is there any way I can recover the system?

I've read this [URL] but it doesn't really highlight if I should drain the battery first or not.

Software :: IMac Hanging - Stop Process At Start Up?

May 21, 2008

I am running the following system:

Apple Macintosh (Intel)
MODEL iMAC
PROC 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
RAM 1 GB 667 MHZ DDR2 SDRAM
DRIVE 300 GB

The hanging appears to have been caused when I accidently moved about 40GB of old photo's onto my desktop. Almost immediately I tried to cancel but all that happened is that the system has hung. Processer can be heard working in the background. Being new to MAC I am pretty stumped. Have tried the obvious forced restart using the power on/off button but no luck. Is there a way I can get in and stop this process say at start up?

OS X :: Accidentally Scanned From Bootcamp And Reset - How To Start Reinstall Process

Oct 2, 2010

I have, somehow, reset my entire OSX. The Dock is now huge, all of my icons are now reset to the default ones when I originally bought the Macbook Pro. The software is still there but the icons have been reset. The icon no longer bounces when I open it.

And I know exactly why. I was in Windows through bootcamp doing routine maintenance and decided to do a full scan using Microsoft Security Essentials. I forgot to have it ignore the E:/ drive which is where MacOSX installed. It must have got 25% through scanning it before I realized it. I don't even know if that can cause a problem but it obviously did. I booted into OSX just to double check everything was ok. It loaded fine, all icons where there and seemed like everything was ok. Except the icons weren't bouncing when I opened up an application even though it was checked in the preferences. This frustrated me so I rebooted again to see if that would fix the issue and now here I am. Completely back to factory defaults. My software is still there but the Dock reset itself and it seems as if other things reset. I'm doomed. So how do I start a reinstall process? Insert the Snow Leapord disk?

Applications :: How To Set The Priority Of A Certain Process In OSX

May 11, 2005

Is there a way to set the priority of a certain process in OSX? Whenever i'm rendering something in Final Cut Pro or any other program, it slows down the whole system (duh), but whenever i'm doing something under windows (rendering 3D or whatever) I can turn down the the priority in the task manager (where would windows be without CTRL+ALT+DELETE) so the whole system doesent slow down to a crawl and I can contunue to do other things while the system is busy rendering. I know it will take a little longer to render depending on whatever else im doing, but i hate slowdowns so much (especially a slow dock).

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

Mac Pro :: Current DVD Ripping Process?

Jun 29, 2009

I'm a brand new Mac Pro owner and in one weekend I was able to convert more of my collection than I could in weeks with my other mac. It's nuts! I owe a lot of that to this board, and I thank you guys for it. I'm hoping maybe there's a better way to speed up my current process.

Anyways, on to the topic. Right now my steps are:

1. Insert DVD and RipIt takes care of the rest (with a non-riplocked drive). Takes 8-12 minutes per DVD.

2. I'll do a stack of my DVDs then queue up a list with the terminal-updated version of Handbrake.
Each movie takes 25-45 minutes, using only 30% processor power, tops.

3. I usually run two instances of Handbrake to speed up the process. They read the DVD images from my main drive and they write to a second internal drive. Last night I had 15 movies queued up for each Handbrake instance and let it go overnight. All 30 were done by 7:30 this morning (started the process at about midnight).

Going through my entire collection has reminded me of how many bad movies I've bought over the years. There's just some need I have to get my entire collection ready to go on my Apple TV's.

How about you guys? What's your process look like? I'd like to see quicker conversions, but I think I'd need an SSD and better optimized Handbrake to make that happen.

OS X :: Unknown Process Hogging CPU & RAM?

Nov 10, 2009

For the last week, my Mac has been running very slow. Even when I don't have any apps open, it still lags. I opened up Activity Monitor to see what is going on. I see that a root process "AgentDaemon" is taking up almost all my CPU and RAM.

When I try to quit (or force quit) this process in the Activity Monitor, it will go away for a second and then come right back.

Does anyone know what purpose the "AgentDaemon" serves? And why is it hogging all my CPU and RAM?

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)

Applications :: Resizing Of Windows In OSX PROCESS?

May 23, 2006

Well I just switched over to Macs on sunday with a new MacBook. Coming from Windows XP theres two things I miss and I want to know if there are any applications to chnage this:

1) In OS X you can only resize windows from the bottom right corner which gets kind of annoying. In Windows XP you can resize from any corner including the sides with that little black adjuster arrow, is there any program or any way I can naturally do something similiar in OS X?

2) I want my Dock to be more like the Start Bar in Windows XP. Meaning that I want all my programs to stop at the Dock on the bottom. Some program automatically stop at the Dock and can't be pulled down behind the Dock, such as iPhoto. Other programs however, such as iTunes, can be pulled down behind the dock and I don't like that. Is there any way I can naturally change this or any application I can download?

OS X :: Application Won't Quit / Process Can't Be Killed

Sep 7, 2006

I just had a unique OSX experience (for me, at least). An application became unresponsive, so I tried to force-quit it from the Dock. It would not quit. Then I tried to tried it from the force-quit dialog. Nothing. Then I opened the Activity Monitor and tried to quit the process. Again, the application window sat open. Then I pulled out my last trick and attempted to kill the process in Terminal. To my amazement, it just sat there. I tried to shut down, but it timed-out. In the end, I had to shut the Mac down with the power button, the first time in years that I've had to do this. Otherwise, OSX (10.4.7) seemed to be working fine -- I was able to quit all my other running application in an orderly fashion before shutting down.

OS X :: Hidden Google Updater Process

Jan 23, 2009

I installed Google Picasa far Mac on a 10.5.6 leopard machine. Today, a window told me that I should update my version of Picasa, but Picasa was not running. The updater was well hidden. In fact, there is no google updater in my StartupItems. Furthermore, there is no goo* process among the running processes. The only upd* process is "update", whose function I ignore. Does anyone know which one is the Google Updater process? At Google they forgot to add "sudo" and User Authentication in the updater. The updater fails also when launched with Administrator privileges. That's funny, the mighty Google offering us such pearls of Mac programming.
