Set the priority of running processes, monitor RAM usage and manage active applications to improve your computer's performance and responsiveness
With the help of Process Lasso, you can improve the operating system's response time and overall stability. It automatically adjusts the priority class for active programs via ProBalance, the app's proprietary algorithm, in order to prevent them from hogging resources.
Manage processes and improve the OS response time
The interface consists of a regular window containing a list of all processes and active ones, along with a graphical representation that shows a history of the processor use, responsiveness, process restraint and memory load.
The list of active processes shows the name, user name, application name, ID, assigned rules, priority class, CPU affinity, I/O and memory priority, CPU level and average level (in percentage), CPU time, restraint history, memory (private bytes and working set), number of threads allocated, handles, page faults, and other relevant information.
Change the process priority class and configure other settings
For each process you can set the priority class (by default, Windows dynamic thread priority boost is enabled), CPU affinity, I/O and memory priority, and application power profile (e.g. balanced), as well as limit the number of instances, enable it to keep running and to restart if terminated, and prevent computer hibernation while it's active.
In addition, you can exclude a process from the ProBalance restraint, foreground boost, and Energy Saver (lets you run the system in high performance mode and conserves power in idle state), mark it as a game or media player process (when the gaming/multimedia mode is enabled), trim its virtual memory, as well as restart or terminate it (by force, if necessary).
Furthermore, you can configure rules for adding a processor to a watchdog monitor list (e.g. for CPU or virtual memory, monitoring time range), as well as log all activity to file. These are just few of the options available for advanced users who would like to tweak Process Lasso.
Comprehensive and speedy process manager
The feature-rich application is surprisingly light on the system resources, has a good response time, and rapidly commits changes. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation. While Process Lasso packs advanced settings for experienced users, letting them fully customize each part of the app, the utility may also be run with default options, since it intelligently prioritizes high-demanding programs and terminates them if necessary. Less experienced users can look into help documentation.
