Since the upgrade to Sierra MediaLibraryService is causing a memory leak


I upgraded to Sierra, since as soon as Itunes is launched, the is originally a large memory leak, it keeps in ram more until she takes all (16 GB) and significantly slows down the computer.

I tried to reset the nvram and smc memory, doesn't change anything.

Does anyone have an idea on what is causing this leak and is there a solution?


Yes, I noticed this also. After that I opened iTunes, it's just a matter of time before all the memory gets used up and all departure is wobbly. In particular, bluetooth really gets bug after a certain time, and as soon as I quit iTunes, that's fine.

  • Photos for Mac behaves VERY strangely since the upgrade to Sierra

    Hi all.

    I have improved my mid 2010 MacBook Pro for macOS Sierra September 21.

    The first time I launched the Photos app after the upgrade, I got the usual message on photo library updated, but when that reaches 100%, I noticed that he was missing a large number of thumbnails in my library. The photos in question were display in miniature (or 'moments') view as pale gray rectangles with a cloud icon in their breast.

    I don't immediately panic, because I assumed that they would gradually repopulate for a little while. I got "Storage optimize Mac", the value of preferences so all of my original pictures must be in iCloud. I have a Time Capsule, make automatic backups, and I made a backup Time Machine on which, immediately before the upgrade, so I am reasonably confident that I did not really lose my photos, (and all of my pictures and their thumbnails are present & correct on my iPhone).

    But, almost a fortnight after the upgrade, most of my thumb nails is always reported missing since the Photos of Mac application, which makes it very difficult to find pictures of course.

    Last night I noticed that the Photos app showed 'Uploading photos 10 985 nnnnnn' at the foot of the view of the times, with the first digit decreases slowly, so I disabled the options to ensure that my Mac doesn't go to sleep and I let it run until the download was complete energy saving. Then, he showed "updated... "at the foot of the view of the times for a while.

    I was hoping that my thumb nail would be back after that, but they are not!

    It seems that the Photos app is not sync with my iCloud storage, for any reason, or at least if it does not in fact what it has synchronized.

    A double click on these thumbnails blank to open the photo is not consistent either. On some that I try to open, they do not open, and when I return to the thumbnail display the thumbnail is now also. But on others I try to open I just see a completely white area where the photo should be. However (and this is really weird!) when I return to the thumbnail display after those I see very very briefly the photos as they will shrink to the size of the thumbnail, and then they are virgins thumbnails with clouds still...

    I wonder if I should change the preference of Photos of 'optimization of storage' to 'download the originals' in an effort to recover my thumb nails. It seems that I have almost 62 GB of free space on my Mac, and my Gallery of photos shows that there are currently 31GB. Or do I have to re - install the Photos app? (Is it possible?)

    Or is there a better solution to the problem please?

    Thank you for all the helpful tips.

  • Since the upgrade to Sierra - my CPU runs hot

    Recently, I used the app store to upgrade my MacBook Pro for OSX Sierra.

    From this point forward - my laptop is very hot and fans constantly run like a Jet engine.

    I see this in the activity monitor:

    I put all my contacts to synchronize hourly, and nothing has changed before the upgrade and after.

    How can I fix it? My life of the battery is to be purged, permanently.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thank you

  • Since the upgrade to Sierra, responds the dock

    After upgrading my iMac (retina 5K, 27 inches, end of 2015) to Sierra, answers the dock (which is not responding to any pointer/mouse clicks) after a few minutes of use.

    I deleted all the login items and provided there is no unnecessary processes running. If I force left the dock, he becomes sensitive after the reboot process. Then after a few minutes she becomes unresponsive. This seems to coincide with the noise of the fan. I tried a reset the PRAM and SMC, but this did not help.

    Everything else is reactive (office/menus/spotlight, siri, etc.).

    Docking station located approximately 147 percent CPU utilization.

    I would be grateful if anyone has any ideas as to what I can do to continue troubleshooting. Thanks in advance.

  • Switching sites causes DW to cling to 255 seconds. Only since the upgrade to DW2015.

    Since the upgrade to 2015 DW, I had an unpleasant experience whenever I go to another site of edition. This problem only occurs when you switch to a large site, for example with 1000 lots of files. I didn't have this problem with DW2014, or any version dating back more than 10 years.

    I'm using the drop sites in the files tab. When I go to a large site (e.g., 13 000 files) I get the quick note where it says "Open Site" and where DW account files.

    Then I get the beach ball, I hear my CPU whirring upward, and I have to wait * literally * 4 or 5 minutes for the control back. Some DW made, it is not being cached, because if I move away to a small site (which is instant) and then switch back to the same large site, I have to wait another 255 seconds for control to return.

    Is there some "typical" I can disable to make faster from sites DW? It is unacceptable when I want to make a 1 minute difficulty to a site, but must be DW to HANG it for 5 minutes to make this minute 1 difficulty.

    What happens if you clear the cache of the site for the offender in 2015 CC?

    • In Firefox 29,0 and above, click on the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    • In previous versions of Firefox, click on the Firefox button in the upper left of the Firefox window and click help (or click on help in the Menu bar, if you do not have a Firefox button) and click on restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Mode safe mode as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

  • Since the upgrade to 10.11.4 won't open my app store.

    Since the upgrade to 10.11.4 will not load the app store my mac icon. It opens, but all I get is a spinning wheel.

    Please test after taking each of the steps that you have not already tried it. Stop when the problem is resolved. Back up all data before making any changes.

    Sometimes, the cause of the problem may be an Apple network, whereby failure cases none of the steps below will have no effect. You just have to wait for the failure be fixed. This should rarely, if ever, take more than a few hours.

    Step 1

    Connect to the App Store by selecting Sign In in the Store menu. If you are already connected, disconnect and then reconnect.

    Step 2

    Remove or disable "Little Snitch", or any other third party software like that blocks outbound connections to network, in accordance with the instructions of the developer.

    Step 3

    In the menu bar, select

     ▹ System Preferences... ▹ Network

    If the preferences window is locked, click the lock icon in the lower left corner and enter your password to unlock it. Click the Advanced button, and then select the Proxies tab. If any proxy are selected, make a note of and then deselect them. You need not change the bypass or the FTP settings. Click OK, and then apply. Test. The result may be that you can not connect to any web server. Restore the previous settings if necessary.

    Step 4

    Log off or restart the computer.

    Step 5

    Start in safe mode and log on to the account of the problem.

    Note: If FileVault is enabled in OS X 10.9 or an earlier version, or if a firmware password is defined, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can not do this. Ask for additional instructions.

    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run as normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things work at all, including an audio output and a Wi - Fi connection on some models. The next normal boot can also be a bit slow.

    The login screen is displayed even if you usually connect automatically. You need your password to log on. If you have forgotten the password, you will have to reset it before you begin.

    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode).

    Step 6

    If possible, connect to a different network and test.

    Step 7

    Reset the NVRAM.

If you have installed an application called 'Own memory' or any other third party software that is supposed to 'clean' or 'purge' memory automatically, remove it according to the instructions of the developer and restart. You should do this even if the software is not causing the problem, because it is useless.

    4. other third party which has been reported to interfere with an audio software includes the "Boom" and "Samsung Kies". If necessary, uninstall instructions of the developer (not not by dragging something in the trash.)
