I'm not particularly worried about it as it seems to be
transitory. A reboot will most likely cure it. The
"kern.maxprocperuid" sysctl setting of 100 seems to be the most
likely culprit. Does that seem fairly low to anyone else?
This is indeed the culprit. Well, that or possibly kern.maxproc
(which defaults to 2048, on my system - 10.4.4 Server - anyway).
Unfortunately you can only up that to 2068, and kern.maxprocperuid
cannot be greater than kern.maxproc.
There may be something else going on; I wouldn't expect to see a lot
of processes being forked on my system, and the times I've seen this
problem (totally independent of Xcode), the system has been more or
It seems to happen when I don't have the time (or patience) to see
what's going on behind the scenes, but I will guess that we're seeing
a symptom, and root cause is something different.
By all means, file a bug.
