Your Mac can show you how much storage space is being used by various categories of files, and how much space is available for additional files. As you take the steps in this article to free up storage space, this storage information updates automatically.
Your Mac can optimize storage by using iCloud to automatically make more storage space available when needed.* Let your Mac free up storage space for you. You can also use built-in utilities to quickly find and delete files, apps, books, movies, and other items that are taking up space, then delete items you no longer need.
If you use a dedicated app, freeing up memory can be as simple as a single click. CleanMyMac X is an Apple-notarized Mac cleaner that assists in decluttering, optimizing, and protecting your Mac. It includes a useful Maintenance module that can help you resolve many memory issues on your machine.
Our first port of call when our Mac slows down or an app freezes is to check Activity Monitor. Activity Monitor is an app that comes with your Mac. You can find it in Utilities, or just start typing Activity Monitor into Spotlight (press Command + Space to bring up a Spotlight window).
In the Memory Pressure section you will see a graph that gives an overview of how much pressure your system is under. Ideally the graph will be green, but if you are short of memory it will be yellow, or worse, red. It is possible that the graph will be red even if it looks like you have lots of memory available, so it can be a good indication of problems.
Websites can be a real memory hog. In recent versions of macOS you will see websites open in Safari listed as separate processes in Activity Monitor, so take a look there to see if there are any memory hogs open on you Mac and close them.
With CleanMyMac X installed on your system you will get a Heavy memory usage alert if your Mac is running out of free RAM. Just click on the Free Up button to release some of the RAM and speed things up.
Have you ever wondered why your Mac seems to be running a little low on memory? It is sometimes frustrating to work using such a computer, since there will be lags whenever you try to accomplish various tasks, such as opening programs. You might even get late on a project and lose some clients when your Mac is slow. Perhaps you have been wondering whether there is a way to free up some of the computer's memory and improve its performance. There are a few things you can do to accomplish that.
Parallels Toolbox is extremely simple to use and effective at helping you free up some memory on your Mac. You only have to press a button and you can use it as many times as you need to consecutively. Here are the steps you will follow to use the tool:
In this guide, we have discussed numerous aspects of managing memory on your Mac. We hope these tips have been helpful! If you would like to learn more about the Parallels Toolbox, please check out its specific qualities on our website.
Memory Clean is the ultimate app for optimizing your Mac's memory and is best used after you have finished using a memory (RAM) intensive app or game. It replicates the feeling of a fresh system restart.
With Memory Clean, you can set the app to automatically clean your memory when free memory falls below a defined threshold amount. You no longer have to remember to keep freeing up your memory to keep your Mac running fast.
This is not necessary for most Mac users, but power users and those with heavy memory demands will undoubtedly find this command helpful in the future. If you feel like you are frequently hitting a memory ceiling learn how to check if your Mac needs a RAM upgrade and consider upgrading, it can dramatically improve overall system performance.
Hi mates.I have an iMac Intel 3,06GHz Dual Core Duo, 4 Gb Ram with 10.6.8 installed.My problem is as follows: after I switch it on and run some common applications (iMail, Safari, iTunes) suddenly my available memory starts being eaten up and drops rapidly to around 100 MB or lower and everything starts running like a snail (so to speak). I have installed Onyx, but I cannot find the purge command (there is no memory tab). Any suggestions?Thank you.
The OS has 4 states of RAM, Wired, Active, Inactive, and Free. Wired is what is being used by the OS (e.g. Kernel task), Active is memory used by User and non-essential System applications, Inactive is memory that just hangs there in case you need it for future use, and Free memory is memory that has not been used, or Inactive memory that has been released from the RAM.
Purge should only be used when you want your system in a fresh state such as playing a RAM intensive game, or if you need to test for memory leaks in a program you are developing in Xcode. (the reason why you need Xcode) Running the purge command after your computer has been on for a while will cause it to run slow for a few minutes because it has to re-address RAM to the applications that are already in use.
purge command is a lifesaver. I could not function without it. When Free memory goes below 100MB my macbook pro becomes unusable. I have to run it several times a day, which really is a mark of bad design in iOS memory management (my opinion only).
Related to all this, does anyone know what cont_datapost processes are? They look like little 80-100 Mb memory leaks, and they accumulate over time. Purge will not make them go away. You can see them on Activity Monitor. I ran a backup to my NAS, and after a few hours, there were about 30 of them, and my free memory was nearly gone; I was not running anything else at the time.
Great command, as a web developer I use memory intensive applications all the time. More specifically however I often download large sql backups of our live databases and restore them locally on my machine. This makes my life easier as I can modify code whilst still using a fairly up to date set of data and without having to rely on an internet connection or latency on connecting to a remote database. I have found that restoring the database on the command line (postgres) gradually eats up my memory and when the restoration has completed sits as inactive memory (up to 5 GB of 8 available). This inactive memory fails to clear (or at least takes hours upon hours). I know I wont need to run this restore command that often so using the purge command prevents me from having to reboot. Thanks for the heads up.
Thank you! I had nearly 8GB of 16GB Inactive memory for the past several days hours. Sometimes it will free up overnight as the system realizes it is not actively being used. Many times it sits used (Inactive). Running memory hungry applications does not force it to be freed from inactive programs, and the experience very obvious slowness due to lack of Free memory.
A great command, thanks for sharing this reference. You are correct, the memory management is a bit flakey, and I can easily go from 2.6gb of free RAM to about 200mb and into swap. I use to have to reboot my machine each time just to free it up and get some higher performance out of my macbook pro. This purge command is exactly the solution I needed!
What I would really like to see is a utility that limits how much RAM an app can allocate so I can put them in a memory sand box. Then I could make XCode (and other apps) behave themselves. Anyone know how I could do this???
Oh really? I had no idea.Did the purge command solved it?Running out of memory is particularly odd because I thought the OSwould channel information to the HD whenever the RAM is fulll (isn`t that what Virtual Memory is all about?).
What a bad a piece of advice. Inactive memory is exactly the same as free memory only that it was recently used and might help launch/use apps quicker. Transforming inactive into free memory will always make things worse and slower.
Mac clearly has memory problems. If you kill all user applications, the sum of Inactive and Free memory should be nearly the same as a reboot. It is under Linux. I have been using Mac (and Linux) for years. If you start and stop the same group of large programs over and over you will run out of memory on a Mac. Purge helps. No need for purge on Linux. You can start and stop and programs on Linux till the earth stands still and it remains solid.
For instance, I have 8 gigs on this particular machine. Memory can get to a state where the free memory is a tiny green slice just a few degrees wide on the Activity Monitor pie chart. Start Lightroom in that condition, startup takes as much as a minute. Purge, system memory goes back to more than 4 GB free, and Lightroom starts in just a few seconds.
The symptoms of not having enough RAM available are fairly clear. If you see any of the following things happening, chances are good that your Mac is swapping out items in RAM to storage (hard disk or SSD). That disk-swapping really slows down your Mac! Here are the symptoms that can tell you that you need to free up RAM:
Another quick way to free up RAM on your Mac is to use a special command in the Terminal app (found in Applications > Utilities). Type in sudo purge, enter your administrative password when requested, and inactive memory is cleared immediately.

Checking CPU use on your Mac is similar to the steps above for checking memory use. For Activity Monitor, you'd make sure to highlight the CPU section of the window. This will show you all the processes using your Mac's CPU at the time.
Similarly, iStat Menus has a CPU & GPU toggle just above the memory section. Activating that will add a CPU and GPU monitor to your Mac menu bar, which has the same interactivity as the memory icon and menu shown above. 2b1af7f3a8
