Coreservicesd/launchservicesd eat a lot of CPU


When I open a few instances of Atom editor (multiple projects), coreservicesd and launchserviced CPU usage skyrockets. When I close Atom, these two go back to ~0%.


I’m on OSX 10.9.2, Atom v0.71.0, no additional packages installed.

Has anyone seen a similar issue? Is there any way to see which packages each how much CPU?


There are a few high CPU usage threads. Like this one:

There are indications that upgrading to 0.81 fixes at least some of these. Try that first.
