Greg Hess Posted August 22, 2002 Share Posted August 22, 2002 Hey guys, found this out yesterday while helping someone troubleshoot an issue. Its quite useful and wanted to pass it along. On Windows NT and Windows 2000, you can permanently set the processor affinity for an application executable by using the imagecfg.exe tool. This tool is located in the \support\debug\i386 folder on a Windows NT cdrom or from the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit Supplement. Open a DOS prompt and enter in the following: imagecfg -a 0xn c:\program files\sybase\Jaguar CTS\bin\jagsrv.exe where 0xn is the affinity mask and maps to a cpu as follows: CPU Mask 0 0x1 1 0x2 2 0x4 3 0x8 4 0x10 5 0x20 http://eshop.sybase.com/detail/1,6904,1010600,00.html To set priority from the command line... For example, if the application is Excel and you want to set a base priority for this application of high, then use this command: Start /high excel.exe So after you set the processor affinity to the second cpu, you could set it to high, or realtime priority by adding a /high or /realtime to the shortcut command line.
