Syslogd runaway

On my Macbook, suddenly syslogd is running away. Seems like suggests that this is because of Tie Machine, even though I have it switched off. You can go and kill it with /Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor and hopefully the new instance won’t go crazy.

In my case, I did this and the new syslogd is still going crazy. What the heck is “syslogd”:, it throws things into Apple’s log files. I suspect this is related to me started “clamav”: and is too jams the CPU when something new is installed.

I’m Rich & Co.
