I had a problem that took forever to resolve. I, too, was using KAM for
many months, when all of a sudden my machine started to creep and crawl.
I started removing different things and monitoring, and replaced them
back into the scheme of things when they didn't help. Once I removed
KAM, things got better significantly.
I didn't replace it and haven't had the problem since. I don't know why
it started happening, and I don't know what the daily download might
have included that particular day, but I'm attributing it to a
combination of KAM and perhaps my version of Perl.
I know there are a lot of people still using KAM without problems, so
I'm guessing that it's just my particular combination of things here
that triggered it.
