Is this related to this thread and HDX... if not please start your own new thread and try to provide the extra info, and answer to questions asked below there.

What exact model/EMC code and configuration?

What exact symptoms do you see before you restart? What exactly slows does?

What you are saying does not quite make sense. Heat does not cause kernel activity and then slow things down. Certain things Pro Tools or other software is doing may cause lots of CPU use, including high “kernel activity” and that may get things warm and then the CPU may thermal throttle.

How much kernel activity? when? Is it caused by specific things you are doing with specific plugins?

You need to try to work out what is going on.

You should exclude memory leaks in plugins... do you get out of memory warnings? What is your disk cache set to? What does the Mac activity monitor show is happening with total memory usage as Pro Tools is running up until you have to restart?

What troubleshooting have you tried? Start with Trashing prefs. Moving .aaxplugin files out of the plugin folder. Testing with other unrelated sessions or starting with empty sessions. Is the system optimized?

While in the topic - is anyone using HDX successful with a Sonnet TB3 enclosure? Sonnet still list it as incompatible, so I assume it still doesn’t work?
