Datgel Processor Affinity Manager

Processor Affinity Manager

The Datgel Processor Affinity Manager manages multiple instances of Windows programs to run on individual cores of a dual-core or quad-core processor in a Windows Terminal Server or desktop environment.

It is particularly useful for older style Windows programs that do not support, or were not designed to take advantage of multi-core processing to utilise all the cores on a computer, providing better performance for your application and overall system.

The Datgel Processor Affinity Manager is useful when using gINT on a Terminal Server, or if you open multiple instances of gINT on your desktop.

The following screenshot shows 8 instances of a Windows program running on a PC with an 8-core processor, without the Processor Affinity Manager. All 8 instances of the Windows program are running on the first core only, and is not using the PC's maximum potential.

The following screenshot shows 8 instances of a Windows program running on a PC with an 8-core processor with the Processor Affinity Manager. The instances of the program are equally distributed on each core by the Processor Affinity Manager, thus maximising the CPU usage and improving the performance of the program.
