OS X 10.9 and not so HUGE swapping

Okay, a post after a long pause 🙂

This time I’m positively surprised by the new OS X 10.9 Mavericks. In my previous post i screamed about 10.6 Snow Leopard swapping like hell and now after three days uptime with 10.9 Mavericks I see no same kind of mad swapping as with 10.6!

Of course this is not an uptime to brag about, but it’s still showing no problems with swapper, the current swap is 1.0GB and the used swap space is between 170GB and at current 211GB. The used swap space doesn’t only increase by time, it also decreases sometimes…

Also the inactive memory is smaller now, it comes close to 500MB at it’s lowest. This all is good news for me, and hopefully everyone using OS X 10.9 Mavericks as a heavy duty workstation OS. I will be watching how memory usage goes about with increasing uptime…

By the way, I’m going to increase my RAM from this measly 4GB to 16GB later this month, so there might be a post after that to see how my workhorse MacBook Pro and Mavericks works after that…

Thanks Apple for making an at least at first glance a great free operating system upgrade! 😀
