Hi all,
while running PPS Sieve on a Vista64 machine since a while, I've now installed Ubuntu X64 onto two other machines to get the PPS Sieve pushed.

It basically works, but the sieve application always starts witch Nice 19, resulting in very poor performance.

Manual renice-ing to -3 pushed the thing forward, but each time a WU finishes and a new one starts the sieve application comes up again with Nice 19.

Anyone here having a clue how to get the machine told to bring up the application with Nice -3 each time automatically?

Regards
Joe

Unfortunately, there's no way to manually set an exact Nice level. However, there are ways to help Linux work "better" with Nice 19. Take a look at the following posts (please read all of them). They explain what's happening and address some solutions. Basically, there are two methods you can attempt.

Please note that this only affects Linux. Also note that these methods are not an endorsement from PG...just for informational purposes only. :)

I see John's already posted.

Essentially:
Open gconf-editor
go to /apps/gnome-power-manager/cpufreq
check box consider_nice

Just to make sure, go to
Applications,
System Tools,
Configuration Editor.

Once the editor is open, go
Apps,
gnome-power-manager,
cpufreq.

Now make sure the the tick box at consider_nice is ticked.
