Hi,

I've installed the latest PRPNET (2.2.3) and found an issue with the PFGW client. ( on Windows)

I run the installer for 4 clients.
I select 4 different projects
I start the 4 clients.

When the 4 clients run llr, it works fine, each process have 25% of CPU.
When 2 clients run LLR and 2 PFGW, the 2 LLR process have 0% cpu and the 2 PFGW have 50% cpu.

When I launch Task Manager, the fourth clients are set with priority LOW.

So I installed another task manager to get the priority of the threads.
With this tools, it seems the threads created by PFGW are set to priority NORMAL.

Hope this help

Ludovic

You can thank M$ and their absolute stupidity for handling task priorities. Unlike *nix, which has a single setting for priority, Windows has two for each process, only one if which can be modified via Task Manager. This means that although two process will appear to have the same priority (in Task Manager), they might not. You can see the difference with the third party software that you installed as it shows the difference.

If you can tell me what this other app shows the LLR priority to be, I can modify the next release of PFGW to do the same.

I use the freeware PrcView.
