Priorities Options

Description

Affects system interaction between two or more AutoMate tasks running at the same time on the same system. Each running task consumes approximately 7 megabytes of memory (depending on the action being executed). The more tasks that run at once, the more memory is consumed and the more CPU power is required to track and maintain the tasks. This option allows more control over how many tasks can run simultaneously, eliminating potential issues that may drastically impede overall system performance.

Parameters

Property

Description

Maximum total of simultaneously running tasks

Specifies the total number of tasks that AutoMate will run at the same time. When this limit is reached, tasks are not started and placed in a "waiting tasks" queue until the running tasks count goes below this value. Queued tasks will run in the order that they were initially placed in the queue. The default (as well as maximum) value is 50.
