    It seems like El Capitan has an error where it allocates over 30 GB of physical and virtual ram to process com.apple.sbd which handles iCloud transmissions sending the memory into critical usage. The fix is to kill the process using activity monitor...heres the catch..I have to do that every single time I wake it up. Its such a killer bug that needs to be fixed before full release. Anyone else have this issue?

    You should be filing a bug report via bugreport.apple.com instead of posting it here. Attach a sysdiagnose log while you're at it.

    Already did, just wanted to see if this was just an isolated event.

    I had this. It's related to iCloud; if you sign out of iCloud and reboot the problem goes away and you can sign back in.

    Did this about 3 times, still comes back every now and then but I think it was just kinda a random thing

    No, it's iCloud Keychain. Turn it off and the problem disappears. For me it also helps to just kill the process after waking from hibernation.

    I'm experiencing this too. Like others, I've just been killing the process after waking from hibernation. I submitted a bug report last week but it was marked as a duplicate, so hopefully they'll have a fix for this soon!

    As below

    My fans were going crazy and the process com.apple.sbd was using loads and loads of memory (and there really was nearly 36GB of swap files created). Rebooted and it seems OK again now, but that's definitely a bug :)

    Login to the Developer Forum, there is a long thread about this already.

    Sorry - missed that thread somehow - have asked the mods to merge this into that one (which they've now done :))

    Thanks - I'll have a look
