Process Lasso Server Features

Tame CPU hungry processes and take control of your Server!

  • ProBalance – Keep your Windows Server responsive during high CPU loads!
  • Real-time CPU affinity and process priority optimization!
  • Optimize and automate process settings, power profiles, and more
  • Partition CPU cores to limit per-process CPU use
  • Disallow select processes
  • Auto-restart mission critical processes
  • Limit number of instances of an app
  • Log and audit process activity
  • Unattended install and headless configuration
  • Monitor real-time server responsiveness with our proprietary metric
  • Light-weight native code with negligible resource use
  • Efficient stand-alone core engine that can run as a service
  • Compatible with all Windows Server variants, from 2008 to 2012


Process Priority Optimization

  • ProBalance retains system responsiveness during high loads by dynamic process priority and/or CPU affinity adjustments


Process Settings Automation

  • Persistent (saved) CPU and I/O priorities, CPU affinities, and other process settings
  • Disallowed processes, terminate problematic processes every time they are seen running
  • Limit per-process CPU use by default CPU affinities
  • Restart selected processes if they terminate, crash, or are closed
  • Instance limits, limit the number of instances a process may have per user session, or for the whole PC — Great for licensing compliance!
  • Watchdog allows custom rules. When processes go over a CPU or virtual memory threshold, one can execute a command, change their CPU affinity, process priority class, I/O priority, trim the working set, log the occurrence, and more!
  • Hyper-Threaded (SMT) core avoidance


Power Profile Automation

  • IdleSaver let’s you specify idle and non-idle power profiles
    e.g. Run in High Performance when a user is active, but drop back to Balanced when PC is idle
  • Application Power Profiles – switch power profiles when specified processes are running
  • Anti-Sleep – Keep the PC and/or display awake when specified processes are running



  • Stand-alone core engine that can run as a system service
  • Unique system responsiveness metric with over a decade of real-world use and testing
  • No network exposure or pipes that might be exploited
  • Multi-user ready
  • Control core parking, and visualize parked CPUs in real-time
  • Minimal resource use and totally optional GUI that goes into a sleep-mode when minimized to the tray
  • Log of processes launched, and statistics on process duration and average CPU use when they exit
  • Silent installer with command line switches for easy deployment
  • Select and act on multiple processes at once
  • Great for Audiophiles
  • Automated updates
  • Optional password protection on configuration
  • Localized to Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), German, French, Polish, Finnish, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Serbian, PTBR, and more!
  • Expansive command line support for unattended (silent) installation and custom configurations
  • So much more…
