Process Lasso is NOT yet another task manager. It is a system automation and optimization utility containing a fleet of algorithms to dynamically boost the performance of your server and retain responsiveness during high loads. Further, with Process Lasso you can automate all kinds of process settings with rules, persistent process priorities, CPU affinities, etc…
Among its features is our famous ProBalance algorithm that temporarily reduces the priority of troublesome background processes in order to improve PC responsiveness, as shown in real-world and synthetic tests. Then there is the Bitsum Highest Performance power plan, tuned to give you maximum performance when you need it. IdleSaver will drop you down to a more conservative power plan when you walk away.
This is the real deal, make no mistake! It is intended for power users, but average users can get large benefits by simply installing it. No further configuration necessary! There is so much more. Give it a try yourself!

Quick Start Guide for Servers
Compatible with all Windows Server variants!
Process Lasso Pro Server Edition is in use at many major corporations on servers of various types (many Remote Desktop / Terminal Servers). They use it because they are tired of seeing non-critical normal priority process(es) degrade server responsiveness.
With our proprietary graphical demo for yourself.algorithm, micro-lags and stalls will be mitigated. You don’t have to take the word for it, try our
Process Lasso offers several compelling features for network administrators. They have control over which processes are run, their priorities, CPU affinities, maximum running instances, and much more. While it is theoretically possible that scripting languages could accomplish some of what Process Lasso does, they are very slow and cumbersome in comparison to tight native C++ without any abstraction layers. We at Bitsum Technologies specialize in low-level code, so you won’t see our software hogging your resources.
Best of all, Process Lasso has an independent core engine (ProcessGovernor) that can run as a service or normal elevated process. Some people prefer services, while in the post-XP world of Task Scheduler 2, others prefer running it as a normal process.
Since server administrators need to evaluate the full capabilities of the product, we offer a trial edition of Process Lasso Pro. This is the Server Edition: A timed trial of Process Lasso Pro. It includes all features of the software, but will expire after 30 days. Upon expiration, you should purchase a license from the options below.
The core engine (ProcessGovernor.exe) can run all by itself, without the GUI management console. It can optionally be configured to run as a service, or set itself up in the Windows Task Scheduler. Custom usage is simple and command line switches are provided for even greater control.
Process Lasso, and its ProBalance algorithm, are as useful and efficacious for new PCs as they are for old PCs, especially since the speed of processors hasn’t been increasing a lot in recent years, replaced instead by increased parallelism (more cores). In fact, a strong argument can be made that Process Lasso is now more useful and efficacious than ever!
Betanews on ProBalance:
Process Lasso’s headline technology is ProBalance, a smart tool which monitors running processes and intelligently adjusts the priority of resource hogs as they appear.
Can this really make a difference? We used the developer’s (Bitsum) “CPU Eater” demo to create a process with 48 active threads, and tried launching Chrome (with its core files cached). It took 30-40 seconds to appear with ProBalance disabled, under 1 second with it turned on.
That was a very extreme example, so we tried again with 16 threads (one per core), and Chrome loaded in 5 seconds; 8 threads and it loaded in around 2, still more than twice the ProBalance-enabled time.
We tried a few other CPU-stressing apps with similar results. If you’re running multiple applications at the same time, and something tries to hog your CPU, then Process Lasso’s priority tweaks generally mean your system stays very responsive.
