Looks like Photos Agent is running in the background. I'd like to dedicate this machine to file services and not run unnecessary processes. How can I disable "Photos Agent" at boot time. I'm hoping to free up resources like RAM and CPU.
From personal experience, I can say that letting it finish once (it processes photos in the Photos app) makes it end forever.
But you can speed up that process by removing iCloud photos syncing.
