i have unknown delays in my mac sometimes... everything work well but one time in 2-3 hours kernel is overflow and i wait about from 30 sec to 5 minuts till it will end, and will start to work normal.

Its not caused from any app, because i tried to kill all, but its without change.

Any ideas how i can debug it? Kernel process is overflowed in time of delay.

I'm new user in Mac so i can't find.

Thank you.

Some process is using up your RAM or CPU. You can find out which one by running the top command in a terminal.
