On my macbook air I noticed a weird problem, I wonder if this is normal.
I was copying 4gb file from my mac to home server using
First I noticed my usb/wireless mouse getting sluggish I checked MBA trackpad and it seemed fine.
Afterwards I noticed ram was at 95% (4gb) I purged ram which brought it back to 32% which is normal for my system. After few seconds I see it slowly crawl back to 89% and increasing.
Any ideas what is happening? is something wrong with ram sticks? or is this normal behavior with SCP. I thought about it a little, and considering that scp is a secure copy probably there is some kind of encrypting going on on my end and since it was 4gb file probably system was stressed for increased amount of time (but this doesn't hold as CPU was 20-30%).
At this moment ram is at 99%.
checked with ubuntu home server and same situation free ram 66mb and rest of 2gb ram stick is wired.
I also want to mention that most of the ram on my mac is also inactive just wired. My only annoyance is mouse sluggishness at this point.
