I have an old
MacBook Pro 2012/2013 and it has the
Activity Monitor tool I can get the following stats according the following behavior:
For example if the Mac is just started the
Kernel Task has 500MB and
Memory Ram has 2.0 GB, if I just open
Firefox the two components increase (how is expected) lets say to 750MB and 2.5GB respectively. If I close Firefox (
Cmd + Q), I would expect that the values return to 500MB and 2.0GB respectively. Well it does not happen how is expected, for example: the
Kernel Task returns to 650MB (and not to 500MB) and the
Memory Ram returns to 2.2GB (and not 2.0GB).
I have this behavior with other programs apart of
Is there a command where I can free in general all the
kernel task and
memory ram? At least to the best acceptable minimum values according to the OS itself after to execute the command.
The goal is after to execute some "heavy" software development tools and servers (therefore when they have just been closed), release the best amount of resources of these two components.
