Mac OS X: Purging Inactive Memory

Filed in mac Leave a comment

Warning: Although this command should be generally safe, please make sure you have quit all your application and nothing important is running before trying this.

If inactive memory seems to be something that bothers you, use the following command in Terminal to purge it:

purge

it’s surprising that simple, but totally at your own risk.
