    Is this normal disk IO? my Mac mini is set up as a server hosting a tiny minecraft server (2-3 players), VPN and downloading usually less than 1gb a day.

    its been up for 20 Days, systemstatsd is up to 35GB and total IO is 115/120GB!

    Good question. For Yosemite this might be normal.

    However it is possible to deactivate the systemstats services (com.apple.systemstatsd.plist, com.apple.systemstats.daily.plist and com.apple.systemstats.analysis.plist).

    I've done this because I don't want my systems to spy on me. Another reason are the excessive disk writes which wear the SSD for no obvious reason.

    How would I go about disabling them?

    thanks! I saw systemstatsd was writing gigs of data a day on my brand new SSD, and Im not having that.

    FWIW some processes are still listed as having app nap activated after following instructions at that link. Systemstatsd is not running, confirmed in Activity Viewer.
