Memory Leak / CPU Spikes

I am running FMPU 6.0v4 (Educational) on Mac OS X 10.2.8 (the last one) / 733 G4 Quicksilver / 1.25 Gigs ram

Over the last month I have noticed what I thought were increasing crashes, however after looking at 'top' when these things occur, FileMaker is actually just taking up 96-98% of the CPU. Normally FMP only takes up about 10-12% and spikes to 20% during heavy periods of traffic.

So this is not a crash situation as the system still runs, no crash dialog boxes come up, it's just using too much of the CPU to serve any more pages. After reading other posts here about the many problems with FM crashing, I wanted to see if this may actually be the problem most are having.

In my company we are running FMPro 6.0v4 with 10.2.8 as our main contacts-, inventory- and invoicing system without any problems.

And I think the fact that it is an educational copy only affects the price you pay for it, not the code...

Are you using any plugins? If so temporarily remove them.

Another good idea to troubleshoot OS X problems is to just create a new account, login with that account and see if the problem disappears.

If so then the problem is most likely caused by a corrupt preference file in your user library.

Hope this helps,
