Process Lasso / "Restraints" column in main panel possible?
« Last post by Coldblackice on April 14, 2021, 09:51:17 AM »
Would it be possible to add a "Restraints" column in the main process list panel? I know the data is already in the Insights viewer, but that requires extra clicks to get to, opened in a separate window, but most of all, it's data that's split off on an island away from the context of the other running metrics/stats.

It would be great being able to see #/frequency of restraints nestled in between columns of CPU usage, page faults, etc. to get a better contextual picture of what's happening with a process that's being/been restrained, even if merely correlational (e.g. a frequently-restrained process also having high hard page fault count, which even if one isn't the cause of the other, it's useful context to what's going on behind the curtain).

What does the Process Lasso log say when you exit a game (and up in High Performance)?

Recently I noticed my power plan sitting at High Performance for some reason and I couldn't figure out why, as it's not a power plan I use. I use Balanced by default and manually set all my games to Bitsum Highest Performance. I have "Enable Automatic Detection (e.g. Steam) unticked.

Then I realized, every time I shut down games on Steam, it reverts to High Performance. Starts at Balanced, runs Bitsum Highest Performance when the game is active and then back to High Performance, meaning I manually have to change it back to Balanced every time I've played a Steam game.

Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere that controls this behaviour or am I encountering a bug? Is something else pushing the High Performance power profile?

Process Lasso / Re: Server Edition installer warning + edition differences
« Last post by Jeremy Collake on March 06, 2021, 01:03:20 PM »
When you've selected the wrong edition, the installer will download and run the right edition, so you can't install the wrong edition .. no matter what you do.

It is informing that it is about to perform the download, thus answering YES continues that process. NO cancels the install.

I agree the CANCEL button was superfluous, so have removed it.

The eventual plan is to migrate to MSI, at which time further improvements will be considered.

Thanks for the feedback!

Also, are there any nonstandard differences between the install procedures between the editions, or can I just install the non-server edition over the top of the now-installed server edition?

Usually I would take the safe route and just clean uninstall everything and then reinstall from fresh. I can do that if necessary, but I'm hoping they both just change a main binary or two.
Process Lasso / Server Edition installer warning + edition differences

A heads-up on a minor point --

I think it might be good to reword the installer warning about installing a differing edition on top of an already present installation. Given that the installer filenames are the same for everything -- consumer vs. server vs. stable vs. beta -- and the beta links both being the same nondescript word in parentheses, I didn't realize I had accidentally downloaded the server edition until I saw this warning. My fault though for not paying better attention.

The installer asked something like "Do you want to continue? Yes/No/Cancel". I was pretty sure the "right" answer was "No", I didn't want to continue installing the server edition on top of the already installed consumer edition.

As often happens with installer/warning questions like these, they're not always totally clear on their wording tied to a specific course of action. Because of this, I considered just going the safe route and doing a "Cancel", but I felt that might also allow the server installation to finish installing, so I clicked "No." It continued installing the server edition.

So if I didn't misread it, it might be good to revise the wording so it's a more direct/clear question, along with taking away one of the buttons so it's only a distinct yes or no path -- do you want to continue installing server ed.? "Yes" continues the install, "No" cancels the install + reverses anything done thus far.

And I very well may have just misread the message -- I apologize if that was the case. I move too quickly sometimes.

Wow, this looks fantastic! It looks great and is noticeable right away that there's a filter box/feature there, while contrasting well with the surrounding gray, and it's even accentuated well by the filter icon, which also helps bring notice to it. Nicely done!

This is now improved as of v10.0.133 beta:

(133) GUI/LogViewer: In dark mode, make filter edit control backgrounds darker than parent to increase visibility

As of v10 (now in beta), the logs are all CSV.

There are also some new registry settings to control the rotation rate and depth, which I'll document soon.

This should allow for what you want.

I invite you to try it if you feel adventurous. I always appreciate your feedback.

Currently, the v10 release is scheduled for a couple weeks.
