OSX - Disabling Spindump and VM Compressor 

In case you need to do so. 

If you do, you'll know why. I'm not spending a lot of time getting into the why's and why-not's.  

Just putting this note here, for reference: 

VM Compressor: 
# nvram boot-args="vm_compressor=1" 

Check mode: 
# sysctl -a vm.compressor_mode vm.compressor_mode: 1 


# cd /usr/sbin/ 
# mv spindump spindump.bak 
# ln -s /usr/bin/true /usr/sbin/spindump 
# launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
