OSX Tips – Turn off / Disable CalendarAgent from the Command Line

 iCal

OSX’s CalendarAgent can cause issues with processor/memory hogging from time to time. If you want to disable it yo can do so from the command line:

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.CalendarAgent.plist

You can re-enable it with the following:

launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.CalendarAgent.plist

You can test to see if it’s running with the following command:

sudo launchctl list | grep CalendarAgent
