Mac OSX kernel's use of the internets

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Discovered yesterday that my mach_kernel has been sending and recieving quite a bit of data... with nothing to show for it... I have about 800mb of unaccounted for downloads, and it was using about 450kbs/40kbs continuously for a while...


Anyone know why the kernel does this... is it even meant to?


The screenshot explains it a bit better i think...


What confuses me is why they all traceroute to random places like Japan, or run around the world until they abort...

i do know what mach is... I have half written my own kernel (though unstable). The reason is there is no logical reason for its data use... or why it is sending loads of data to random areas of asia, europe or the americas
