    Specs:
    Mac Pro quad dual processors
    Packets in and out
    In activity monitor there seems to be a large number of packets being sent out. For example right now I have 396,223 packets in and 301,895 packets out. Safari web content shows 230,145 packets received ans 634 packets sent. The rest of the activity lists about 1500 packets sent. There is no unusual CPU or Memory activity. What could be generating these sent packets? Mac Pro mavericks

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Tons of things, from the atomic clock time check to email.

    Restart the machine and keep an eye on it if it concerns you.
