    My 2 year old iMac has been running slow lately. When I look at Activity Monitor I see a process named perl5.10.0 using over 700 mb of memory and currently 80% of CPU. I find nothing about this when I Google it except it's related to programming which I do none of. Can anyone help with this or let me know what's going on? Could it be a worm? Thanks.

    Edit: It looks like it has something to do with Squeezebox Server. I just quit the process and my SB Server stopped. When I restarted it, the perl5.10.0 came back. Any idea how/why something that's supposed to run in the background can use that much memory?

    Try rebooting your Logitech device

    I was having precisely the same issue while running Squeezebox Server 7.6.1. Rebooting our Logitech device -- a Squeezebox Duet -- solved the problem.
