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?

thanks!

Hi,

I have sort of the same issue.

I also have a win2008 TS system with the WSRM rule "EQUAL_PER_SESSION" set to manage. But if i logon with a test user and run
a CPU stress tool then i can bring down the system performance to an unacceptable level.

I have followed the Microsoft Technet Guide at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771218.aspx

I have tried to created my own rules but that does not make a difference.

The WSRM state is RUNNING so it should work.


Some helpfull inputs would be nice :)

Best Regards
René
