My mac computer had been slowing down since last week.
I can't figure out which of the program that I have installed is causing the problem.
I eliminated the Internet connection possibility because even though I'm using offline applications, the unit is still the same.
It could be a problem with CPU, I guess.
How could I enable Mac CPU log?
Is it really available in Mac?
Mac CPU Log for Troubleshooting Computer Slow Down
There is a method to keep track of the CPU use. You have to open a terminal, type "top" and run.
You will see it running continuously. If you want to quit the terminal, press "Q" or "Ctrl + C".
Be noticed to quit using the given way, only when the log details are satisfactory enough with time period you are concerning. i.e if you wish to observe a week's log data, you don't need to run the command "top" beyond that limit.
You can save the entries as a log file, into your desktop. Run this: top > desktop / top.txt.
For more instructions, run this in the terminal: man top
