Hi All,

Is there any way that I can set the maximum usage of the processor on a citrix box per user.

ie to set the server so that no user can have more than 30% of the processor power at any time.

PS3 with hotfix mpse300w2k3r03
Server2003 SP1

    I know there are softwares such as TScale that you can use to do this.  What types of programs are you using that a user is killing the system

    everyone has a desktop. the main app is a front end to a database which when the user do a search for example it can use up to 48% just for the one user to do that. obiously if 2 users run a search at the same time...........

    apart from that it is just the normal ms office stuff and web browsing with the known problem of flash having its usual effect on the server.

    Can you upgrade to PS 4.0?  In version 4.0 there is a new feature called CPU Utilization Management that will do exaclty what you are asking.

    Read about it here in the 4.0 Admin Guide:  (page 300)
