    What eda_scan does?

    by scl1 ·

    I noticed some [b]eda_scan[/b] process, which runs all the time and consumes CPU. I am not big specialist in Mac OS so I don’t know how to identify the purpose of it.

    I tried to Force Quit on it but it restarted again.

    Does anybody know what [b]eda_scan[/b] does and if there any way to make it less demanding for CPU?

    I am using Mac OS Mojave on Macbook Pro:
    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro15,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core i9
    Processor Speed: 2.3 GHz
    Number of Processors: 1
    Total Number of Cores: 8
    L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
    L3 Cache: 16 MB
    Hyper-Threading Technology: Enabled
    Memory: 16 GB
    Boot ROM Version: 1037. (iBridge: 17.16.13050.0.0,0)

      I had better luck at Apple forums in finding the solution.

      The eda_scan is part of Digital Guardian Data Loss Prevention software. Seems like at certain conditions it become stuck and consume too much CPU.

      It is a kind of system notification caused by insufficient disk space. Mostly Antivirus causes this and users to encounter the error notification when they try to run the certain game or hard disk intensive application.

      There are a couple of remedies:

      Disabling Antivirus (Not recommended)
      Run Application/ game as Administrator
      Clear Application/ game Download Cache
      Repair Application/ game Library Files
      Verify Integrity Of Application/ game files
