Q. How do I specify a new process for Windows System Resource Manager (WSRM) to manage?

A. Before you can tell WSRM to impose CPU and memory restrictions on a process, you must define the process in WSRM by specifying matching criteria. Here's how to do this:

  1. Start the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Windows Server Resource Manager snap-in (Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, Windows Server Resource Manager).
  2. Right-click Process Matching Criteria and select New Process Matching Criteria.
  3. Give the matching criteria a name (e.g., the application's name), then click Add.
  4. If the application is currently running, select Running Process from the drop-down list, then click Select and select the process, as the figure at Figure shows.
  5. The path of the selected process will be added. Click OK to close the dialog boxes.

You've now defined your application as a process to which WSRM can assign resources.
