  • Hi ,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Sophos Community. May we know what specific performance issues were you experiencing? Does it slows down the device or something else? Can you also confirm the macOS versions running on these machines?

    I look forward to your reply.

  • Hi Gladys,

    both machines are running MacOS 12.5.

    On the MAC Air the only improvement was the reduced use of swap space as far as I can tell.

    The Mac mini is a 2018 3.2ghz 6 core I7 with 32gb of ram. Observed issues

    1/. very slow startup, both boot, then access the logon screen, then completing the logon process enabling the user to start accessing applications

    2/ very slow application access, unreasonably slow.

    3/. failed to identify spam emails.
