Priorities Options

The Priorities tab settings affect system interaction between two or more AutoMate tasks running at the same time on the same system. Each running task consumes approximately 7MB of memory (depending on what actions are 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

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 task 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.
