    I have a fresh Mac Pro, bought new and fully updated last week, running 10.9.3. We're using it to run Filemaker 12. When I look in the Activity Monitor I see Java using about 200mb (fine) and 78 threads (ok) with 126,000 ports (what??). The next closest thing is launchd with a thousand ports.

    I haven't been able to google-fu an answer yet, so does anybody know if that high number of threads is unusual, and if so what it might indicate? We're having intermittent problems with the server and it'd sure be nifty if this was the problem.

    I don't know what Filemaker 12 does, but I have a statistics Java app which uses every byte of RAM I allow it to use... usually I add a -Xmx16000m in the command line and this way it doesn't crash prematurely :p
