Yes I know I should have waited for the next release, but I was too tempted this time.

 

I have a 2008 i7 iMac with 8gb that has been runing fine for 5 years. I been through startup folders, etc and killed off a few things like an old divx encoder. Otherwise I can't see the problem.

 

Since Mavericks I have to "purge" (if I remember), or hard-boot the computer every few hours. Memory use is about 500meg per minute. It will start pausing apps with the window "Your system has run out of application memory".

 

I managed to catch it once before it was too far gone and purge then get a screen shot of processes. "devicemgrd" and "kernal_task" seem to the problem

The number of messages in console is beyond, but here are a few examples;

 

I have millions of these;

 

26/10/2013 9:53:16.000 am kernel[0]: Sandbox: xcscredd(168) deny file-read-metadata /Users

 

and these

 

26/10/2013 9:53:16.000 am kernel[0]: Sandbox: apspd(154) deny file-read-metadata /Users

 

 

26/10/2013 9:41:01.000 am kernel[0]: Sandbox: apspd(154) deny file-read-metadata /Library/Server

 

and then the death throws look like this
