Since I upgraded my iMac and Macbook to El Capitan I am getting crashes with suggestd.

Process: suggestd [14703]
Path: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreSuggestions.framework/Versions/A/Support/suggestd
Identifier: suggestd
Version: 1.0 (354.10)
Code Type: X86-64 (Native)
Parent Process: ??? [1]
Responsible: suggestd [14703]
User ID: 501

Date/Time: 2015-10-01 19:42:08.037 +0100
OS Version: Mac OS X 10.11 (15A284)
Report Version: 11

This is occurring repeatedly on both my Macs since I upgraded to the full release of El Cap, it did not happen with the GM.

Has anyone else observed this? What is suggestd? Any thoughts on how I might fix it?

Thanks.

I had a look at your threads. Have you figured out what suggestd actually is?

Unfortunately not, but it sure eats CPU like a pack of wolves !! The process is run from ~/Library/Suggestions.
Hey there it is from the notifications bar running on the side with all the info on your day and apps... Im searching for a way to manage it now . the joys of sharing.

Ah ! I basically ended up re-installing El Capitan and although the errors came back at first, then at some point for some unknown reason they stopped occurring. I have no idea what I did. Maybe removing/moving/fiddling with some of the items fixed it ? I really can't say.

Good luck and if you find anything out, i'd love to here any findings !

Good tip, thanks for that. I wonder if it's related to a specific notification, and if I can narrow down what one it is?

I am running Today, Find My Friends, Calculator, Weather, Deliveries (third party app), Calendar and Tomorrow.

I haven't used my Macs too much recently, however initial impressions are that my crashes have stopped too? (I have probably jinxed it and they will return). 12 crashes 1st of Oct, six on the 2nd of Oct, one on the 6th and two on the 7th. Since then nothing.

I haven't reinstalled El Cap and there hasn't been any OS X update since then, so I am not sure how it could suddenly fix itself?

I agree, self fixing software is extremely rare. :)

I run Today, World Clock, Calendar, Weather, Stocks, iStat Mini, Tomorrow so pretty much everything and then some.

Only thing I could think of (in respect to "self fixing") is that if some of the items for some reason had network issues that caused a crash and that I later switched network or similar (I do switch networks quite often here at work actually) which fixed it. But then again I should seen it if I got the system in the same state (i.e no network or ... whatever).

Another thing I was thinking of was the fact that it took an eon and a half to index the disk as I run with end2end encryption on the disk in combination with anti virus software. It makes the drive (spin drive) moan whenever I do file I/O. At some point it was done doing this, and perhaps that took care of whatever root cause there were.
