Panic Restart

I installed 10.11.6 on 7/19. This is the 2nd one of these panics since then. Any ideas?

I have heard that configd can sometimes run wild, and I would happily kill it, but I'm generally not around at 11:30pm.

That cache folder needs to be emptied.

Did you run EtreCheck on the drive after your install?

I ran EtreCheck and it found four user launch agents that failed to load (one Adobe), one launch daemon and one launch agent (both Adobe). Nothing here appears to be either new or insidious.

Which cache folder did you mean and how do I empty it?

The line in your panic report: 46"@/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/

You probably have several apple cache files. I am not sure what the xbs refers to, but if you empty that folder, you should be good to go.
At the same times, you can empty the Safari (or browser of your choice) folder. It can get pretty big at times.

The full reference is to a line in a source file of MacOSX itself. That folder doesn't exist on my system.

Several months ago I began emptying the Safari cache every day or two, after I noticed that things weren't updating often enough.

[QUOTE="Whitehill, post: 1533263, member: 31562”] Several months ago I began emptying the Safari cache every day or two, after I noticed that things weren't updating often enough.[/QUOTE]

What do you mean things weren’t updating often enough? The cache of Safari saves parts of sites you visit. When you go back, Safari looks at the site, then compares with the cache. It updates the cache if there are changes, but that is only so you can read offline. When you empty the cache, there is nothing to compare, so it loads direct from the site. It should be quicker to load with an empty cache.

As for that com.apple file, if the panic report lists it, it should be in the Library of the System folder on the hard drive. It exists, you just can’t see it.

Sorry for the long delay. I have been away on unrelated matters - and one related matter. I upgraded my iMac to have 16gb RAM and replaced the internal disk with a 1TB SSD drive. It's very responsive now and no more panics. But ... yesterday I installed Sierra and already this morning I had to kill 'configd' which was overwhelming the CPUs. I also have to kill 'mDNSresponder' now and then.

What do you mean things weren’t updating often enough?
It is my habit to look at a financial site every morning. When I notice that certain info hasn't changed for a day or two, I select Safari's Develop/Empty Caches and reload the site. The info updates appropriately 99% of the time.

Are you referring to this? /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/xnu/xnu-3248.60.10/osfmk/kern/waitq.c:594 This is debugging info. It means line number 594 in the C source file waitq.c in the indicated subdirectory on the machine on which my version of OS X was built. On my machine ...

$ sudo pwd

No, but now I have - after downloading the new version compatible with Sierra.
  • Startup Items - Since these are obsolete, I deleted everything.
  • User Launch Agents failed - deleted
    • Adobe ARMDCHelper
    • com.zeobit.MacKeeper.Helper.plist - boy, is this crap hard to get rid of!
That's it. Did you have anything specific in mind?

Those maybe the two that have been causing you trouble. Let’s see what happens.
