Coordinator Settings Dialog Agent Assignment->CPU Availability Page

Coordinator Settings Dialog – Agent Assignment->CPU Availability Page

The Agent Assignment->CPU Availability page allows system-wide definition of applications that Agents 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).

Agent CPU Availability Calculation

Processes specified in this list are ignored when IncrediBuild evaluates Agents' 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. All changes made to this list apply to all Agents.

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.

Notes:

  • Ignored processes can also be configured separately for every Agent in the system. This is done using the Agent settings dialog.
  • 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.
