Reston, Virginia – Software and Computer Systems Company, LLC (SCSC) has released a new web based document titled “Analyzing Mountain Lion Performance Problems with Activity Monitor.” The document is intended to make users more aware of the SCSC product line and presence as a force in Mac OS X development, and also to provide users of Mac operating systems with what will become a point of reference and trusted source for technical information. The company expects to continually update the site at least twice a month with more articles that most users will find both interesting and valuable.
“We’re quite excited about this, since it’s our first entry into this new section of our web site,” stated an SCSC spokesman. “Many people are reporting performance problems and in some cases, bugs, with Apple’s latest operating system release, Mountain Lion. In this document, we show users how to monitor their systems for performance problems using the Activity Monitor application. Activity Monitor is part of the standard Mac OS X release, and has been so since OS X 10.3, or Panther. We pay particular attention to the mds process, or the meta data server, since it’s frequently behind a lot of the perceived problems with Mountain Lion. We also include a list of common problems and even a bug or two that many people may run across when using the OS.”
“The site is currently sponsored by us, and will only have an ad or two from our firm. This might change in the future, but we want to keep this section of the site as free of advertising as possible. People will be able to come here and find solutions to problems, rather than being harassed by ads, pop ups, or highlighted keywords that pop up yet another ad. When people come here, they’ll see an introductory ad or two at the top of the page for our products, and possibly another ad at the bottom for another product, and that will be it. If people are interested in our products, hopefully they’ll click on our ads to find out more, but aside from that, the articles will be purely informative and technical.”
SCSC currently produces a line of products for Mac OS X, including Scannerz with FSE/FSE-Lite, SpotOff with Spot-O-Meter, and FSE. Scannerz is a hard drive and system scanning tool, SpotOff with Spot-O-Meter is a Spotlight and mds controller, and FSE is a file system events monitor. The company expects their first entry into the How-To section to make users aware of the low cost product, SpotOff with Spot-O-Meter, since it can help users gain some degree of control over some of the Spotlight indexing problems present with Mountain Lion.
