Process Lasso / Re: Possible to limit per-process memory usage?

You'd have to use a Watchdog rule to restart the offending process. Forcibly denying memory allocation would simply cause the application to crash, so there can be no externally imposed limit on virtual memory consumption, and the best that can be done to limit RAM usage is via the Working Set Trim.

Process Lasso / Possible to limit per-process memory usage?
« Last post by Coldblackice on November 10, 2021, 09:51:25 AM »
Is there a way to limit a particular program's memory usage, preventing a program from getting a "blank check" to expand its memory usage until system RAM is nearly maxed? This is particularly a common occurrence with web browsers, when using lots of tabs.

I looked around in the settings but couldn't find this, just auto-trimming/purging.

Process Lasso / Re: Ryzen Question
« Last post by Jeremy Collake on November 04, 2021, 10:16:59 AM »
This is not an unreasonable question. One might theorize that for some bursting loads, having been in ‘Balanced’ might allow more Precision Boost headroom. However, there is no evidence of that, and my intuition is that the inefficiencies inherent to CPU ramp-up from low power states well exceeds any theoretical advantage of using ‘Balanced’ on these platforms. For this reason, I advise use of ‘Bitsum Highest Performance’.

Of course, it is up to you. You can choose which power profile to associate with Process Lasso’s Performance Mode via the menu item ‘Power / Performance Mode / Select Power Profile…’, and/or use additional power profile automation capabilities to run the power profile that matches your application load.

Finally, I think the take-away from advice to use ‘Balanced’ is that the power profile now performs better on Ryzen platforms than it once did, having inherited from the short-lived ‘Ryzen Balanced’ power profile.

Process Lasso / Ryzen Question
« Last post by flyg on November 03, 2021, 04:36:23 PM »
Hi,

Just wondering if I should use bitsum high performance or leave it as balanced? AMD have said their chips are designed to run at balanced profile (at least for windows 11) so I was wondering how accurate that actually is and if im hurting things forcing high..

(its 5800x so there is no ryzen balanced, they just say leave it as windows balanced)

Process Lasso / Re: Process Lasso Error on Affinity Setting

Thanks, I will try that.  It was super frustrating in bf2142 suffering through horrible lag due to the cross ccx transfer and the only solution was to half my cores...  I appreciate the help.  Too bad we can't use the same vehicles as the root cheats to get around it!

Process Lasso / Re: Process Lasso Error on Affinity Setting

While you can't make any changes on the game exe with some anti-cheat software, sometimes you can work around it by setting priority and affinity rules to the game launcher.
What this might do is let the parent launcher enable the affinity you want w/o setting rules to the child (game.exe).

It is worth a try to see if it works.

Process Lasso / Re: Process Lasso Error on Affinity Setting

This error is caused by anti-cheat systems protecting the game process(es). Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done.

Process Lasso / Process Lasso Error on Affinity Setting
« Last post by liquidfrollo on November 01, 2021, 02:47:44 PM »
Apparently, process lasso hates my face.  When I attempt to set affinity for specific apps.  I have included New World, however, I tested the same thing in the BF2142 beta and had the exact same result.  I also had Process lasso on windows 10 with the same experience.

Hello
For years I have just set the active power plan in group policy to the GUID for Bitsum Highest Performance.
I have been tring to create a quieter, cooler PC when not gaming. Ideally using Speedshift on a 'balanced' power plan to reduce core clock speeds when not gaming - this worked nicely.
 :-[
I thought I would try to set the default win 10 power plan to balanced, and each time I launched a game I would alt+tab and find the game process in Process Lasso, set 'induce performance mode' (because PL does not do this for most games unfortunately),  ' exclude from ProBalance', and select the default power plan for the game as Bitsum Highest Performance.
The game does switch to the power plan when launched but I have found that I have been having both game stutters and recently, very short audio drop outs for no reason - no new drivers, nothing changed.

I went back into group policy and enabled the active power plan as Bitsum Highest Performance and all issues resolved.

Appreciate feedback. Thanks.

How much ram do you have? Stutters is pretty common in PC games, and it can happen for a multitude of reasons. Most of the times it happens in games that are cross platform.
