Windows System Resource Manager no cpu limit?
Posted on 2008-10-10
We have a terminal server where outlook, open office and firefox/IE are the usual user applications. But there are some of the users that need a cobol specific application.
Everything runs fine, except the cobol is taking up a lot of cpu resources.
I've tried to set some resource policies with WSRM. With my policy, the cobol app is limited to only one CPU core and automaticaly set to low priority (8% of the cpu max limit through WSRM). But it still is taking sometimes cpu spikes with more then 30% of one cpu core.
Can you effectively limit total cpu usage of a process, and not only force windows to set it to low priority and one cpu?
