OS X :: "httpd" Process Taking Up Huge Amounts Of Virtual Memory?

Oct 24, 2008

I just took a quiz online on Blackboard (university online suite for tests/homework/class notes) and I had to accept a trust certificate so a 30 min. limit timer would begin. After finishing the test, I looked in activity monitor and there are 2 processes: httpd(root) and http(_www). They are taking up about 2.6 GB of virtual ram each, and almost all of my physical memory is being used. Also, under the "kind" column, it lists them as Intel (64-Bit). What are these and why will they not disappear when I try to force-quit them?

OS X :: Large Amounts Of Data Copying?

Oct 29, 2009

I have 1.9TB on one drive, 645GB on another; I want to copy all that data onto a separate 6TB drive....

What's the fastest way to do this? I have already begun w/ 2 cp -pR commands, running in different Terminal windows, but seem to be getting lower disk activity numbers in Activity Monitor than I was with a brief test of a Finder copy... is that possible?

Any suggestions? Also looking for a (relatively) efficient way to verify the copied data after the fact.

Windows On Mac :: Sync Large Amounts Of Data?

Nov 26, 2010

I use robocopy (command line copy utility built into windows) to sync ~150GB of data between multiple windows machines. I've never had any issues, it will run and check the data to make sure it is synchronized, if there are no changes it can check the 150GB in a few minutes.

Now I have a Mac 10.6 that will have a copy of the data on an HFS partition. I'm connecting to the Mac from a Windows 7 machine via file sharing in Mac to Windows. I have robocopied the data onto the Mac system. However when I re-run robocopy all the files show up as Older or Newer time stamp so it will have to recopy everything making it useless for synching just changes.

I've tried the /fft switch for use with fat32 and file systems that don't store the time as precisely as NTFS

I've tried the /dst switch to check and see if Daylight savings is messing it up.

Anyone else have this issue?

Can you suggest any utilities that you use to sync large amounts of data between mac and windows?

Applications :: Software For Copying Large Amounts Of Data?

Apr 22, 2009

I was just wandering if there is any software that people use for copying large amounts of data, or whether you just drag and drop/copy and paste with Finder?

Applications :: Mail - Incoming Messages In Large Amounts?

Nov 23, 2009

I have a 13" MBP running 10.6.2 and for some reason I randomly get Mail bringing in like 3,400 messages and i have not been able to figure our why. I have the following Mail accounts:

1. Work - this is pop and I know it can not be this account causing it as I only leave 1 day on server so there is not that many in there
2. .Mac - (mobile me) however i only have 2,784 messages in it so the numbers dont match up
3. gmail - this account only has 26 messages since i only use it for GV and syncing an Android phone

It does this very quickly for supposedly bring in that many messages and when it finished nothing has changed and i notice nothing new in my Mail accounts?

Applications :: How To Delete Large Amounts Of Deleted Duplicate Mp3s

Oct 21, 2010

ive got a decent sized itunes library, 20,393 songs/125.5 gbs of music in the program, but over time as i have added files a lot of times id get duplicate files so i would delete those, and when i deleted them i didnt always press the move to trash button, and just for what ever reason would sometimes press the keep file button, so now at this point after doing this for a while i now have a music folder that is 168gbs of music, when i really only have 125 in itunes so is there any program or way to automatically delete those duplicates, because it would take a rediculous amount of time to go and find and delete each one individually obviuosly.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Safari Taking Too Much Memory?

May 8, 2012

I've noticed lately that Safari (red) has three processes that take most of my memory, along with the horrible McAffe Anti-virus (blue) that my job requires... is this normal? Is there any way to reduce this?

MacBook :: Limited To Amount Of Memory Resources

Mar 18, 2009

I have the 2.2 blacbook, 4gb ram, 320gb hdd. Now when I first bought my macbook, I did not use Illustrator or Photoshop CS3 (for both). Now 1.5 years in, I am using Illustrator and I noticed that when I am working on both (either at the same time, or with one program closed) I sometime get the message in Illustrator "Not enough memory" or "Not enough ram" or when I am saving an image for web and devices "an unknown error has occurred"

BUT if I use Illustrator and Photoshop CS3 (for both) on Vista via bootcamp none of these errors occur. I just don't want to imaging what will happen when I use CS4. Is this due to the way Leopard is setup? I am also looking to upgrade...So do you guys think the new macbook or macbook pros would be better? I mean, my current macbook is holding up well...but I just hate these errors. I prefer to work in Leopard than Vista.

OS X :: What System Resources Does Spaces Use

Aug 22, 2009

Is Spaces actually creating a larger virtual desktop or is it just a single desktop and hiding/showing apps based on the selected space?

What resources are being consumed, if anything, by adding spaces? Main memory? Video ram? Nothing?

|Applications :: Safari Glutton With System Resources - Run Little Slimmer?

Dec 30, 2009

I absolutely LOVE Safari, despite the zippier speed of Chrome and the bells & whistles that accompany Firefox (both of which I now use from time to time, although Safari is definitely my MAIN browser). But why does each iteration of Safari seem to take up more system resources and run slower than the previous version? Especially if it's left on for a while- I had Safari use up to 700MB of memory (constant beachballing) for no apparent reason (no windows open) after I updated to the latest version. Anyone know why Safari is such a glutton with the system resources, and if there's a way to make it run a little slimmer?

OS X :: Transferring Large Zip File To Memory Stick

Jul 6, 2009

I have a 8gb memory stick and want to transfer my 5gb zip file to it but I get error code 0. I read this is because my zip file is too big in FAT format and that if I change it to ntsf or something I'll be able to transfer it.

1. How do I change it into ntsf format
2. What should I download to write into the ntsf format memory stick on my mac.

OS X :: Startup Disk Full - Large Memory Available?

Jul 13, 2009

I was using my Macbook awhile ago and I got a popup message saying my startup disk is full, even though I have 84.05 gigs available. I figured it was a fluke and ignored it. A bit later, I was doing some stuff in Finder and noticed at the bottom where it says my drive's free space, it suddenly went from 84.05 GB free, to zero free, gave me the error message, and went back up to 84.05 gigs free, and it's done this a couple times...and the only thing I was doing was copying a 3 KB text file from a thumb drive. Anyone know WTF is up with that? It definitely is strange and I've never seen it before. I just ran a Verify in Disk Utility and everything checks out, no errors

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?

OS X :: Safari Consumes Large Memory When Scrolling Webpages

Apr 27, 2010

Anyone know why my Safari takes up to 70% CPU when scrolling up and down webpages. Makes the whole computer super laggy!

Closed all webpages with Flash on them and the problem's still there.

Also tried resetting Safari and emptying it's cache. It made it faster for a few minutes, but then the slowness was back.

Can it be related to my hard drive (got almost no page-outs)?

yesterday, my machine starting dragging along. granted, i had a load of programs open, but that's macOS, innit?

"TrueBlue Environment" it was called, and i killed it immediately. the dock restarted and then it was fine. none of my apps quit. what was this?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Gfortran: lots Of 'idle Memory' After Return From Subroutines With Large Arrays?

Jun 3, 2012

Don't know how to file a possible bug report.  I checked my OS-X version and it is 10.5.8,  maybe more recent versions have been fixed: Here is a cut & paste from the gfortran bugzilla site  [reply] [-]2012-06-04 02:38:12 UTC Calls to fortran subroutines that use large temporary arrays fill up 'idle memory' on the MAC-OSX, as can be seen with 'top' or the Mac 'activity monitor'.  I found that I can get around this by using:  call system('purge')  in the code to evoke the command line 'purge' from within the program before the 'return' statement for such subroutines to free the idle memory; but I was wondering whether something could be done more fundamentally at the compiler level to avoid this problem.  Without such clearing of idle memory I used to hear lots of disk access being done to get around the small amount of free 'core' memory.  Massive arrays would eat up  many Gb of core memory by turning it to 'idle memory'.  Maybe there is a compile time option that I do not know about. [reply] [-]Comment 12012-06-04 02:47:43 UTC This sounds more like a bug in the Mac OS X kernel/libc and how it handles memory allocation.

MacBook Pro :: What To Do About HD When Taking System For Service

Feb 19, 2010

My 13'' MBP is starting to act up and it's time to take it in for service. The display is not living up to expectation, but worse are issues waking up from sleep and unexplainable pinwheeling (during low cpu/memory/disk usage periods, etc)Anyway, based on previous experience with apple, i suspect they'll resort to the catchall new logic board solution they usually go to. My concern is that I've upgraded my HDD to a 500GB WD. Usually I would drop the stock 250 in there for the purpose of having it serviced and just put my 500 back when I got the machine back. The issue now is that the 250 is being used in another machine, and this would be a giant headache.

Mac Pro :: Disk Scratched - System Taking Longer To Rip CDs

Jun 1, 2010

I have a brand new 15 inch i5 mbp. I put a cd in to rip it onto itunes. It was really scratched. Now the computer ate my disc (I know I can restart and it will be ok, that's not my question). Shouldn't my brand new mbp be able to cope with a scratched disc? It seems a bit bizarre that the entire computer would freeze just because a disc is scratched. Also, it seems like it takes much longer to rip cds than it does on my pc. It doesn't just seem like it. It takes almost twice as long.
