I'm running Mountain Lion 10.8.3 and have some problem with repeated error-messages crowding the
Apr 19 15:15:14 pc49 com.apple.launchd: * process 1 exceeded 500 log message per second limit - remaining messages this second discarded *
Apr 19 15:15:44 --- last message repeated 29 times ---
Apr 19 15:15:44 pc49 com.apple.launchd: * process 1 exceeded 500 log message per second limit - remaining messages this second discarded *
Apr 19 15:16:04 --- last message repeated 20 times ---
I guess "process 1" refers to the PID, which then of course is launchd itself, so i can't just kill it. Also, in the last line (15:16:04) it says "last message", but what message does it actually refer to? I don't even know the messages being omitted.
"top -o cpu" btw. tells me that syslogd is using about 90% cpu, although everything runs smoothly, and has produced about 200 million faults since i killed it 2 hours ago where it immediately restarted.
launchd (with pid 1) uses about 45% cpu and counts 2 billion faults so far.
Also PIDs (which are -are they?- assigned in a consecutive manner) are in the tenths of thousands. Since this is supposed to be a local server of some sort, occasional reboots are not so cool. Last reboot (that i know of) was one week ago.
