Fix slow OSX Terminal launch


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

The Mac OSX Terminal can become slow to launch over time, but there’s an easy solution to speed it up again.


By deleting the Apple System Logs, you can shave the lag in opening and launching new Terminal window/tabs dramatically, in my case from about a three second delay to instantaneous!


Here’s how to delete the log files and gain your Terminal launch speed back:


1. Open Terminal

2. Type: sudo rm -rf /private/var/log/asl/*.asl

3. Hit ENTER, close the terminal and test again..


Wolla :)
