Agent Settings Dialog Helper-> CPU Availability Page

Agent Settings Dialog – Helper->CPU Availability Page

The Helper->CPU Availability page is used to define applications the Agent should ignore when calculating CPU availability. This is useful when IncrediBuild is installed alongside other applications that utilize idle CPU time (such as the [email protected] project).

CPU Availability Calculation

Ignore these processes when calculating CPU availability:

Processes specified in this list are ignored when IncrediBuild evaluates the Agent's current availability. To configure IncrediBuild to run alongside an application that uses idle CPU time, all processes related to this application should be added to this list.

The following buttons are available:
Add... – opens a selection list with all processes currently running in the system
Modify... – opens a selection list with all processes currently running in the system, and replaces the currently selected process with the newly selected process
Remove – removes the currently selected process from the list
Remove All – clears the entire process list's contents

Power Management

Do not participate in builds when running on battery power.

This option should be used to minimize the workload on a user's machine when working on battery, in order to preserve the battery power.

Notes:

  • Ignored Processes can also be configured centrally for all Agents in the system. This is done using the Coordinator settings dialog in the Coordinator Monitor.
  • When using this feature, it is recommended to maintain a relatively high Compiler Task Process Priority setting, to ensure that tasks assigned to this Agent receive sufficient CPU time.
