Under Diagnostic & Usage Data I have a lot of "Latest Crash" & a whole bunch of "LowMemory" reports - is that normal?

I looked there about two days ago and I found a lot of "Low Memory" reports.

Low memory is normal.

I don't know what it's telling you though. Is it saying there were crashes AND low memory or is it saying that there were crashes BECAUSE of low memory?

How is the list arranged?

Apple made a huge mistake affording people to see this stats. They're just asking for people to get hung up on them and create a bigger headache for themselves.

Hmmm... there are many diagnostic messages on my new iPhone 4S (including a handful of low memory errors). I am using iOS5. The majority of the diagnostics are listed as process awdd. There are threads on the Apple support communities about awdd (see here and here) and MR (see here). I presume awdd is some sort of routine diagnostic tool - perhaps reporting loss of [WiFi?] network signal (it lists channel and signal parameters and 'EAP' as the security parameter).

Anybody knowledgeable about what awdd is?

I don't think its a problem unless it pops up on the screen. It might just be saying that it closed apps held in memory because it needed to free it up.

I do think all of this is routine - my iPhone has worked really well since I bought it, so my interest in the logs is just out of curiosity. And I suppose that, as with all IT technology, the more ones knows, the less one has to rely on others.

Just wondering if I should have this turned off when the JB comes out? Or does it not matter at all?

I think the low memory logs are mostly created to provide information to Apple about which apps tend to be the most problematic in terms of hogging memory resources.

Weird. Mine do when I sync with iTunes....

I assume they get sent off to Apple and removed from the data log.

I have a bunch of them too, but it never bothers me as I rarely look at them.

I found on my wife's phone there was a tremendous number of them and they were using data when sent to Apple.

I love seeing my diagnostic data. I also allow my data to be sent to Apple automatically, it makes me feel like they are more aware of problems
