Assigning CPU priority for the backup process on laptops

Assigning CPU priority to the backup process

During backups, inSync client consumes processing power from the CPU. As an administrator, you can configure the priority that the operating system on user's laptop assigns to the backup process. A high CPU priority for inSync backup might affect the performance of other applications on users’ laptops. A very low CPU priority slows down the inSync backup operations. It is recommended that you set CPU priority between 5 and 6.

Note: This functionality is managed through profiles and not at individual user level.


To assign CPU priority

  1. On the menu bar, click Manage Profiles.
  2. Click the profile that you want to modify.
  3. Under the Laptop Backup Schedule tab, in the Laptop Backup Resources area, click Edit. The Edit Profile window appears.


  4. Move the CPU priority slider to reflect the CPU priority assigned to inSync.
  5. Click Save.
