Windows pbxctrl service task priority


Recommended Posts

We have another service on the server machine that causes pbxctrl to hiccup or delay

i/o when running. I do not want to lower the other services priority but would like to

have PBXnSIP preempt the other task.

 

I was wanting to have the pbx service run with an "Above Normal" task priority.

I am unable to renice the priority from taskman. Is there a way to get pbxctrl.exe

service to set a higher task priority at runtime by default?

 

Thanks,

Isaac

what is the other process?

i get this feeling you need to fix the other process not pbxsip. (from some fixing i've done)

 

I'm also getting more of the opinion that an ippbx needs to be on its own box.

(well, maybe vm if that works ;-)

I found the solution, It is called Prio from O&K Software. Prio lets me

set the priority of the task and remember the priority at each reboot.

Also it shows you each tasks TCP/IP socket & bandwidth usage. It is

especially helpful since it shows UDP streams as well.

 

I wish this could be a feature added to a newer release. It would

be useful in both Windows, OSX, Linux and also FreeBSD !

Sounds like a good tool. For $ 19.95 sounds like a no brainer!

 

If you just want to see the sockets, you can also just use netstat.

"netstat -a -n -o" will work for quick & dirty info, but is limited when troubleshooting.

It does not show what process name is actually listening to a specified port only PID.

Also the list of open sockets usually overrun the available scrollback buffer in the

cmd window. Thus causing you to do console redirection / piping to find the info.

 

An alternate tool I use is Sysinternals's TCPview (does both TCP & UDP). It will list

processes and connection endpoints. Works reasonably well and free for all users.
