OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Daily.out Log File Is Taking Up Over 26GB Of HDD?

Jun 25, 2012

I've only got 160MB left on my HD and my daily.out log is taking up a large part of it. This is what the log is telling me and I can't say how far back it goes because just the one day can take up a few pages of scripts! This is a sample of what the majority of the log seems to be: This was the 15th of June just passed. 

Fri Jun 15 10:17:22 pa122-110-23-211 kernel[0] <Debug>: ::AddtoQueue: Enter, Size = 1518.
Fri Jun 15 10:17:22 pa122-110-23-211 kernel[0] <Debug>: ::AddtoQueue: Exit, Return: 1518.
Fri Jun 15 10:17:22 pa122-110-23-211 kernel[0] <Debug>: ::RemovefromQueue: Enter, MaciSize = 1020.
Fri Jun 15 10:17:22 pa122-110-23-211 kernel[0] <Debug>: ::RemovefromQueue: Exit, Return: 1020.


I have no idea what any of this means, and if it wasn't for Google I wouldn't've found the folder in the first place. And this is only around 26GB of the whole 79GB the HD has available. My personal files take up under 20GB of data.

OS X :: Emptying Trash Taking Too Long?

Sep 12, 2010

I have about 22GB or about 23,500 items to be emptied from the trash. Most of items are just jpg images. I just started to commence emptying and it is taking approximate 1sec to delete one item. So by calculation, it will take 6.5 hrs. !

At same time, I'm just doing my normal spread sheet work.

Is there anything wrong?

I'm currently running my mac with an SSD in place of my original HDD and my HDD in place of my optical drive. For some reason when I try and boot down my mac it is taking an unusually long time considering I'm running my OS on an SSD. Here is the shutdown system log for the process which is taking a long time.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Takes Too Long To Sleep?

Aug 30, 2009

I recently upgrade my leopard to snow leopard and when ever i put the computer to sleep it takes quite a while for it to actually go into sleep mode.

Now I tried pmset with no success like so: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

Why does snow leopard take so long to go to sleep, does anyone else have this issue? Is there anything else i could try to fix it. It says hibernatemode is 0 in pmset info table.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Taking A Screenshot To Show The Mouse Cursor?

May 26, 2012

I often take screenshots to explain things on the FCP X forum etc. 

In FCP X, like most video editing apps, the cursor can change its appearance dramatically according to what tool you are currently using. Unfortunately taking a screenshot does not display the cursor or its appearance at that moment. 

I have a workaround involving making a video of the screen and cursor using Screenflow but this is ridiculously complicated. Is there a simple way of recording the cursor's icon on a screenshot?

I have a 2.2Ghz Macbook with 2Gb ram and its running 10.5.2 (update went fine) and for some time now the start up of my mac has been very long. It sometimes take in excess of 30 minutes to turn on.

Mac Pro :: Taking Long To Read Folder Contents With New HD?

Apr 29, 2009

I have a macpro 08, with a 500gb hd. Now I buy a WD "black" HD (WDGWD1001FALS) 1tb!

1) I erase and install leopard on the 500gb, result slow read on folders content, around 9 seconds to read content of folders.
2) I eject of macpro the 1tb, and erase and install leopard again 500gb, when done... oh now great folders content load well! so I insert the 2nd hd 1tb... everything well for 1 day... now I feel again a delay on load folders! But this time is not 9 seconds! is around 2 or 3!

My question, what happened, is normal, that when insert a 2nd or 3 or 4 HDs load folders is a little more slow? I create a screenshot video attachment.

Windows On Mac :: Checkdisk Taking Very Long Time On MBP

Jul 2, 2009

I tried running a chkdsk /f /r on my late 2008 MBP yesterday. Started around 18:30, it was still running this morning and had only got to stage 4 of 5 and was on 18%, that's over 12 hours! I'm running Windows 7 64bit RC, and the partition size is 84 GB. My desktop computer on the same o/s and a 150 GB partition, took about 45-50 mins to complete this on the weekend, and I was wondering if any other MBP users had run a full checkdisk and how long it takes on their machines?

MacBook Pro :: Browsers Taking Long To Load Up

Jul 8, 2009

I just noticed that my umbp is kind of slow. For example, safari used to load up less than a second. Now it takes about two to four bounces. Then, it will take 1 second to start up. On Firefox, it usually takes 5 to 6 bounces to start up as well. Could there be a lot going on through my activity monitor?

Applications :: Taking Really Long Time To Load .wmv?

Nov 9, 2009

why but lately all the .wmv videos I have watched have taken an extremely long time to fully load. Before the whole file would load and I would be able to seek throughout the video to any part which I liked. Now however, the video instantaneously pops up but I have to wait for it to load before I am able to seek but I can basically watch the whole video before it fully loads (as if it was streaming).

In the attached picture, the Quicktime seek bar looks like this as I open it.

I have the free version of flip4mac, quicktime and OSX 10.5.8.

OS X :: Zip Files Taking Long To Download On MacBook Pro

Feb 2, 2010

I'm at a university and I've had a MacBook Pro for about a year now. The OS is Mac OS X 10.5.8. The processor is 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. The Memory is 4 GB DDR2. When I'm at the University we use a secure wireless network. When I option click on the AirPort icon, I get the following readings:

Channel: 11
RSSI: -68
Transmit Rate: 130

Because it's a university-wide system, I have no idea what the router information is. When I asked our IT staff about it - a group of part-time college students - they just shrug and tell me everything is working. I can download movie files in an instant. Zip files, even the most basic ones, take about half an hour. This is true even when the movie and the zip file is on the same website. A movie file, six or eight times the size of the zip, downloads much faster. I've read through this forum and others. I followed this suggestion: I deleted my AirPort setting and reinstalled it under "wireless". This did not seem to change anything.

to a Windows 2003 server. Everything works great as long as I'm under 31 characters. 

I'm running Mac OS X 10.6.8. 

Is there a default setting on either the server or the Mac to allow for this to happen?
