I think its doubtful but its worth investigating. This doesn’t happen all the time but often enough that it causes grief. Mavericks starts grabbing all available memory and then some. Normally we don’t consume more than about 6GB of memory and 10GB maximum, so my 24GB of RAM should just never get saturated. But sometimes it does and then the system simply crawls. I don’t have Faces turned on either.
I’m trying to embed a picture of the memory usage but this forum refuses to play nicely with my work machine (running Solaris) so here’s a link:
Aperture is only using 2GB. There is a huge kernel task. And I’ve got significant memory pressure and swap usage, explaining the sluggishness.
Anyway Aperture is causing this somehow?
