Anyone knows how do I solve high memory consumption of the process "kernel_task" ?

I tried to delete .plist files from folder bellow, but the problem still continue

My Mac: Macmini6,1



  • Why did you delete exactly those files? BTW 700 MB memory consumption is completely normal... – klanomath Mar 23 '15 at 17:14
  • I have 450 Mb with 2% CPU and it does not bother me! – Ruskes Mar 23 '15 at 17:15
  • How much RAM do you have in your Mac? And what problem are you trying to solve by reducing the amount of RAM allocated to kernel_task? It is generally a bad idea to randomly mess with files under /System, you could end up with a Mac that can't boot. – Alistair McMillan Mar 23 '15 at 17:59
