A comprehensive system utility capable of redirecting CPU resources to improve the performance of applications with high priority
Process Lasso Server is an application especially designed to help you manage active process on your system and prevent system stalls.
Process Lasso Server is a great companion to Windows based servers. It can help to maintain server responsiveness during high CPU loads, manage and control running processes, and automate numerous process settings or conditions.
The core engine, processgovernor.exe, runs silently in the background, and can be installed as a system service. The GUI can be launched when configuration changes are desired, or one would like to monitor the log.
The ProBalance algorithm works particularly well on servers. Windows Servers are tuned to be more fair to all running processes than are workstations, which are tuned to give an increased priority to processes in the foreground.
The result is that the a foreground process can easily experience lags, stalls, or freezes during high CPU loads. With ProBalance at work, processes that are greedy with the CPU have their priorities temporarily lowered, helping to prevent degradation of server responsiveness while interacting with the user.
Here are some key features of “Process Lasso Server”:
Process Priority and CPU Affinity Optimization:
· ProBalance retains system responsiveness during high loads by dynamic process priority and/or CPU affinity adjustments;
· Hyper-Threaded core avoidance.
Process Settings Automation:
· Persistent (saved) CPU and I/O priorities, CPU affinities, and other process settings;
· Disallowed processes, terminate bothersome processes every time they are seen running;
· Restart selected processes if they terminate, crash, or are closed;
· Instance limits, limit the number of instances a process may have per user session, or for the whole PC;
· Watchdog allows custom rules. When processes go over a CPU or virtual memory threshold, one can execute a command, change their CPU affinity, process priority class, I/O priority, trim the working set and log the occurrence.
Power Profile Automation:
· Energy Saver let’s you specify idle and non-idle power profiles;
· e.g. Run in High Performance when a user is active, but drop back to Balanced when PC is idle;
· Application Power Profiles – switch power profiles when specified processes are running;
· Anti-Sleep – Keep the PC and/or display awake when specified processes are running.
· Stand-alone core engine that can run as a system service;
· Unique System Responsiveness metric with over a decade of real-world use and testing;
· Log to CSV;
· Multi-user ready;
· Display of Parked Cores in easy to read shaded graphs;
· Control core parking, and visualize parked CPUs in real-time;
· Minimal resource use and totally optional GUI that goes into a sleep-mode when minimized to the tray;
· Log of processes launched, and statistics on process duration and average CPU use when they exit.
· 30 days trial
· Add ‘Keep PC Awake’ countdown timer overlaid on graph
· GUI: Add ‘Disable’ option to Keep PC awake timer
· GUI: Fix newly specified disallowed process would not be immediately saved
· GUI: Fix GUI bug when trying to select cores 32 and above
· GUI: Selection of new current CPU affinity wouldn’t initialize affinity selection dialog with current CPU affinity
· GUI: Selection of new default CPU affinity wouldn’t initialize affinity selection dialog with existing default CPU affinity
· GUI: Fix affinity selection dialog CPU checkbox controls overlapped a pixel
· Core Work around another Symantec (NIS) process that has ‘tamper detection’ issues
· Core: Allow preservation of CPU affinities in excess of current system CPU count
· Installer Don’t create a start menu short-cut for ‘Reset to defaults’
· GUI: Additional minor changes
· Languages Updated Simplified Chinese, Serbian, German, Italian, and others
