LowProfile (application usage component)

IT Asset Management (Cloud)


LowProfile determines the CPU priority of the application usage component on the computer device where it is executing as a service. As well as prioritizing the code execution, it simultaneously sets the same priority for all input/output by the usage service on that device.
  • When set to True, the usage service runs with low priority. For UNIX-like systems, this sets the nice level of the process to 10. On recent Windows platforms, it uses background processing mode (PROCESS_MODE_BACKGROUND_BEGIN). On legacy Windows platforms where this is not supported (such as Windows XP and earlier), it uses a priority of idle (IDLE_PRIORITY_CLASS).

  • When set to False, the same processes run with normal priority.
