I think I read it also in another thread, but the only thing I really miss in your excellent ProcessTamer tool is the explicit rule:

Force kill after XX seconds

XX could also be a static value (for example 30 seconds or something like that).

In one of the tools I use for batch processing when I'm not in front of my PC, the CPU often goes up to 100% for a few seconds what is OK, but sometimes it hangs in an endless loop. In that case it would be very helpful to kill it after 30 seconds or so...

my next plan for process tamer is to allow some flexible rules, i will make sure to add one like this:
kill app X app if its cpu use is over Y for Z minutes.

(am i understanding this right, that its a specific process you want to specify for killing?)

it's a single application.

In the current ProcessTamer version I can use the explicit rule "Force kill", but I would need a "Force kill after 30 seconds of >90% CPU usage" or something like that.

So your mentioned "kill app X if its cpu use is over Y for Z minutes" will exactly do what I need. Thanks smiley
