Looking at the conditions, it is not hard to imagine a bottleneck forming somewhere. The part that puzzles me is I cannot find the bottleneck when looking at Activity Monitor. There seems to be plenty of memory and CPU capacity available for what is running I often have to wait 1 to 15 seconds after clicking on an app before the click takes effect.
Conditions creating a problem:
Running three instances of Debian as guest virtual machines under VMWare Fusion 10.
Running FireFox with 20 Open Tabs, with up to five of them on various youtube pages, running only one video at a time. Other videos stopped
Running Atom (app for editing programs)
Memory and Processor Allocations:
I am clicking on the text editor and having to wait a long time before it responds. While that is happening, I can click on Activity Monitor, open on another desktop/space. Here is the CPU load with a lot of files being copied among VMs and disks:
System/Boot Disk (sandisk ssd)
- - Post merged: - -
Most Active VM Runs on this SSD
The other two VMs are for backups that run on cron schedule, stored on HDD
Do you have any ideas or guesses about what exactly makes my system hang for 10+ seconds when clicking on an app?
Any idea on how I can find out if the information needed to figure this out is not included in this post?
Any assistance you can provide will be very much appreciated and mean that you are awesome and my hero.
