One of my client is reporting high memory usage on his computer. memory usage gets higher ans higher as it's goes on. any suggestion of how to stop my client's from crashing. it's checking in every few seconds.
I keep seeing this on the jamf log:
No patch policies were found.
Checking for policies triggered by "recurring check-in" for user
Checking for patches...
Had this issue a week ago - open the console app and look for jamfdaemon, this should clarify which app is causing the problem.
In our case it was a scientific app called “IGV” which you can download and install in two separate ways:
App including Java JDK = Jamfdaemon runs amok
App only and separate Java JDK installer = Jamfdaemon runs fine again
Try to figure out the “broken app”.
Similar issue here with MATLAB today. Played nice until my user did a 2D visualisation of well plates. jamfdaemon goes absolutely nuts, and Console shows some fun things happening a LOT of times per second. Up to 22GB RAM very quickly.
Second App (GSEA) - same error!
Seems like the jamfdaemon doesn’t like apps which have already a Java JDK included in the App itself. But this time it’s not just the memory running amok - it’s also the CPU usage.
We have seen the same issue since updating to 10.30.1. For us, adjusting the recurring check-in time from 5 minutes to 15 or 30 minutes seems to have made the issue better, but I've also put in a support ticket with Jamf for this.
Edit: Jamf replied this is an issue with application usage logging, disable that and it should help until there's a new version ready.
