General Software Discussion / Multi-threaded software
« on: July 30, 2008, 07:56 AM »
I've just upgraded to a multi-core processor (Intel Quad Core) for the first time.
Until now I haven't been concerned whether an application is multi-threaded or not.   Now all of a sudden I'd prefer multi-threaded applications if possible (most of the time my current applications only use one core, and my multi-threaded Java test programs just don't cut the mustard.  I mean how many times can you watch the Dining Philosophers problem being solved? ;)
Anyway my question is, does anybody know of a list of multi-threaded applications I might use to take advantage of all my new processing power.
If not, we should start one!

ProcessTamer / Turning automatic process taming off.
« on: December 19, 2005, 03:01 AM »
I have process tamer installed on my laptop (a development PC), and my desktop (mainly games).

For my laptop the program is perfect as is, however for my desktop I want to use it to set a default lower priority for programs like Konfabulator, so they don't chew processor cycles while I'm playing. 
Process Tamer handles this just beautifully, but I don't want it to lower the priority of my gaming software, and don't want to go through and manually specify all my games as a certain set priority. 

My question is, is there a way to turn off the automatic process priority adjustment?  A usage high trigger of 99% does half the job, because there is almost always some other process chewing up some of the processor, but a way of turning it off would be better still.
