My activity monitor is showing the following two items, AddressBookSourceSync and CalendarAgent, using 75% to 85% of my resources. What are these and what are they doing? There is a third call Mingle that is also using a large amount of resources. Is all of this normal?

    Not likely unless the usage is just when the process is active. But if that's continuous then those processes may have crashed or have corrupted files in use.

     

    Select each process. Click on the Quit icon in the AM toolbar. Click on the Force Quit button. If the processes restart see if their CPU usage has dropped. If not, then you want to look for a possibly corrupted cache file or folder either in the /Home/Library/ or /Library/ folder. If you find one put it in the Trash, but do not empty the Trash. Then restart the computer. Open AM to see if the processes are now behaving.

    Kappy,

     

    I deleted as you suggested. Now this morning the, AddressBookSourceSync and CalendarAgent are again using at leat 60% and in addition something called Mingler is using 60% as well. It is not clear as to where to find the cache files (or wht they are) that you have suggested putting in the trash. Can you be more specific?

    OK, I found a possible solution:

     

     

    ~/Library/Application Support/SyncServices/Local and I backed it up and deleted it rebooted and everything is better.

     

     

    See if this helps.

    Kappy,

     

    I found what you see in the attached screen shot. As you will se I do not have what you suggested. Also, so I understand more fully what did you back up and where did you save it?My applications, Screen Shot 2013-04-18 at 4.56.59 PM.png
