I'm currently working in an environment with some Openldap users and nfs mounted homes. Everything is working like a charm, but I'm facing some issues regarding some ReportCrash that keeps writing in the users /home/user/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports thousands of logs suggestd_2017-07-12-095040_e5r1p1.crash

When I give a look in /var/log/system.log, it's completely saturated with ReportCrash full log here

suggestd[2792]: *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'SGSqliteDatabaseError', reason: 'Error(5): database is locked (SQL: PRAGMA journal_mode=WAL)'

I'm wondering how to perhaps, unlocked that SQLite database ? or simply disable suggestd to write down files every 10 seconds.


I've tried to unload theses services, with no changes at all. I'm looking to either fix that "crash", or simply disable that suggestd once and for all.

    Hi - why the NFS and ldap tags? Is there a back story to your setup or a relation to the crash that we're missing? – bmike Jul 17 '17 at 11:54
  • This only occurs when a user is log into the machine. – Tolsadus Jul 17 '17 at 11:54

Try to unload the daemon:

launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.suggestd.plist
