   After upgrading to 10.7.2, and after some time suddenly Dock takes all the CPU and gets unresponsible. killall Dock on terminal does not seem to really kill the task, so I have to reboot to get it solved. After some time the problem repeats.

 

Console events are quite concerning:

Any idea on what can I do to solve it?

    Maybe these threads will help you too?  I would open Activity Monitor and see if you can identify the process. Google has a few posts about this error message. Dropbox and Dolly Drive are mentioned.

       I saw them previously (I googled for a couple of hours before posting the issue).

     

    I never used Dolly Drive, and I did not saw any Dropbox related message in the event log.

     

    Disk Utility reports that the volume is OK, and fix permissions fixes the same errors as always. No luck with this. I'll reboot into recovery partition and will try to check volume from there.

    I'm currently experiencing this. For me, it seems to be related to Mail.  As soon as I open Mail the Dock starts consuming CPU and RAM. Then the fan comes on. When I quit Mail, after a minute or two Dock settles back down to normal.

     

    Still investigating....

    One other idea is Google Talk video plugin was causing problems...

    I deleted my Mail account (Exchange) and any cruft left in Library/Mail.  Opening Mail no longer affected Dock.  Recreated Exchange account then left to go to a meeting. An hour and a half later Dock was pegging CPU and taking 32GB of VM. Not good...

    CoolDixon Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

       I fixed permisions and checked volume from the restore partition and still the same issue again

     

    Today I noticed that while with 320% cpu it's also eating RAM very quick, when I realized so it was consuming 3.5Gb and the VM size was 320Gb!!!

     

    Other thing I noticed today is that every time I kill the Dock task it starts over, consuming the cpu from the begining (so whatever the problem persist). I closed all the applications but Mail and VMware fusion 4.0.2 and killed dock, and it started consuming cpu from the relaunch as before, but then I closed the former apps (and more precisely I'm suspecting about Fusion) and it stopped consuming CPU (after killing Dock again). Does it make sense?

     

    I took a sample of the proccess just in case it's any expert on the board that can figure out what's going on:

    donreith Level 1 Level 1 (20 points)

    i'm running Fusion 4.0.2 as well. going to investigate today to see if it is playing in role in this.

  • 8. Re: Dock uses 320% CPU after 10.7.2 update

    I am also using Fusion 4.0.2. I installed that prior to OS X 10.7.2. For a week I was living with 3-4 kernel panics a day. When I installed 10.7.2 the kernel panics went away. But now the issue with Dock using up 100% of CPU has cropped up (never had this before). I saw some posts which said deleting com.apple.dock.plist from \library\preferences solved the problem. I tried doing this (pain in the neck to rebuild dock). And it seemed to solve the problem temporarily. But now it's coming back with  a vengeance.

     

    This Parallels KB post http://kb.parallels.com/en/111541 indicates that parallels had a similar issue back in OS X 10.6.8. Apparently Dock didn't like windows icons showing in Dock.

     

    Right now I'm going to start researching if it's just Dock not liking strange icons. I just ran a GoToMeeting session and the dock issue popped up right after that. I also had an icon for SQL Server 2008 in my dock when the issue popped up.

     

    Anyway I am going to try seeing what happens if I'm judicious about what icons I keep in dock. But I did want to join this thread. If anybody else wants to pursue this line that would be great.

    I don't have anything definitive, but disabling Spotlight (sudo mdutil -i off -a from Terminal) seems to help with me.  Also suggest running Disk Utility to check for issues.

      That's interesting. I have not suffered the problem in the last two days, since I excluded the virtual machines folder from the spotlight search. I don't know yet if it's related, but it's one of the tests I'm doing.

  • 11. Re: Dock uses 320% CPU after 10.7.2 update

    For me it appears it was the combination of Spotlight and some disk issues. Booted into single user mode & ran fsck. That cleared up several errors on my disk. I had disabled Spotlight while troubleshooting this problem so  I turned it back on then forced a rebuild of indexes ("sudo mdutil -E -a" from Terminal ). Left the Macbook on overight with both Mail and Fusion running. No sign of issues with Dock.

    Dock is using 200-300% CPU on my MBP with 10.7.2 and VMware Fusion 4.0.2.  The problem just appeared this afternoon and is driving me crazy.  Have tried disabling Spotlight to no avail.

  • 13. Re: Dock uses 320% CPU after 10.7.2 update
    GuyHelmer Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Reply to self: Stopped VMware fusion, killed Dock, and now Dock has restarted and is happily running with very low CPU.

  • 14. Re: Dock uses 320% CPU after 10.7.2 update
    donreith Level 1 Level 1 (20 points)

    sorry for others experiencing issue.  for me, i don't think it was Spotlight itself, just that Spotlight was doing sufficient disk activity to run into the corruption on my disk.  I've been running a solid day now using apps as normal without issue.

     

    if you are still having this problem id suggest doing what I did, which was to try turn stuff off until you identify the culprit. I know that *****. this distraction was a 8 hr time investment for me...
