Processor Usage % Feature in Advanced Settings

Jan 13, 2013 at 5:28 AM

Rboy, My sourceforge name is "Eastwood". I had posted a question there in the following link: https://sourceforge.net/p/mcebuddy2x/discussion/featurerequests/thread/5cb809db/

You had said that: "What you did however give me is an idea to provide better prioritization support for reducing disk I/O and CPU utilization. While MCEBuddy cannot limit CPU utilization I've found a way to reduce it and also reduce I/O activity when set to low. You'll find this enhancement in 2.2.2 thanks"

I have noticed that, now in these new versions (2.3.11) when I set the Priority to "Low" it does reduce the CPU usage and therefore reduce processor heat and fan speeds. Thank you for making this happen.

In 2.3.12 you can set the CPU Affinity through profiles.conf so can fine tune control over the usage. Refer to documentation for more details.
