High "kernel_task" Memory Usage

Posted on Jan 12, 2014 10:38 AM, Apple Support Communities - MacBook Pro | discussions.apple.com

Hello All,

 

I am in need of help.  I have a MBP w/Retina from August 2012.  It has worked beautifully until a couple of weeks ago (I think maybe when I installed Mavericks), and it then started to slow down considerably. 

 

I have noticed high memory usage by 'kernel_task' but have no idea what that is.

 

See the attached picture to give you the idea.  Please help me to get my MBP w/Retina back to being awesome again.

 

Much appreciated.
