Hey all, Curious if anyone can shed some light on a simple fix once in awhile to this. I am transcoding a large queue of movies, hundreds to be exact. The 5-10 or so I am still able to use my iMac with no issues, surf the net, reply to emails, even watch flash video and such. I have done about 23 now and now to minimize mail takes even a sec, webpages load slowly and in general performance is degrading. Is this a memory issue where it gets clogged can the only way to refresh the system is do a restart? I prefer not to do this since I will lose whatever transcode that is currently going on. Or is there a memory dump I can perform during this to help performance? I assume it has everything to do with the memory since it is non-stop transcoding, meaning it is full. I check Activity Monitor and it shows 3.79 of my 4gb of memory is being used. On average 95% of the cpu is being used as well, which makes sense. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
