My Mac Mini has been unbelievably slow for a while and the culprit was ddserviced. It would jump to 100% CPU utilization for a few seconds and then calm down. Jump back up and then calm down. It killed the performance of everything on my Mac. Menus would take several seconds to display. I fired up Activity Monitor and the offending program was ‘ddserviced’. I did a google search for ‘ddserviced’ and while others had the problem also, no one knew the solution. After seeing ddinstaller_1-6-1.dmg in my downloads folder, I put 2 and 2 together and uninstalled Drobo Dashboard. My mini is just as fast as it was when I purchased it.
I’ve never had a problem with Drobo Dashboard until now.
Anyone else having this problem?
