Ever since the upgrade to Yosemite, the softwareupdated process always consumes around 100% CPU.
I noticed this the other day when I closed my laptop at the end of the day and the area above the left side of the keyboard was very warm. Looking at Activity Monitor, the softwareupdated process was running at full blast. That also explains the horrible battery life that I have had since upgrading.
I waited to upgrade to Yosemite until after the first xx.xx.1 point release and ever since then the softwareupdated runs constantly, no matter how many times that I kill it.
Is there a solution for this?
MacBook Pro, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
