Hi everyone, When I am running Parallels 7 (with a RHEL 6 virtual machine active), something weird is happening with my memory. My free memory slowly decreases to zero, at which point my system slows to a crawl until I kill an application - UI/programs become unresponsive or slow, etc. This then stops the crawl and gives me back control of the UI or programs but normally requires a painfully slow force-quit on an open application. I also normally have a few other applications open, such as Chrome/Adium/Xcode/Twitter/iTunes and some text editors. My understanding is that the Mac OS is supposed to free up the inactive RAM in these situations. I frequently have 2+ GB of inactive ram when this happens. In addition to roughly 2.5GB wired/active respectively (according to iStatMenus). I do not believe this is happening correctly when Parallels 6 is running, given the above experiences. What steps can I take to avoid this issue? The slowdown very clearly happens when the "free" memory is near zero - this has been consistent over the past weeks of using OS:X (snow leopard) and Parallels 7. The only solution I know is to restart, and not open apps I do not intend to use (because obviously quitting causes them to stay in inactive memory). Any advice would be appreciated!
