Assign CPU priority for inSync backups

inSync On-premise 5.4 Administrator Guide
On-premise Editions: tick.png Private Cloud tick.png Enterprise tick.png Professional


During backups, inSync consumes processing power from the CPU. As an administrator, you can configure the priority that the operating system assigns for the backup process. A high CPU priority for inSync backup might affect the performance of other applications. A very low CPU priority slows down the inSync backup operations. We recommend that you set CPU priority between 5 and 6 for inSync backups.

Note: You can assign CPU priority to inSync through profiles. You cannot do this on an individual user level.


To assign CPU priority

  1. On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click Manage Profiles.
  2. Click the link of the profile for which you want to assign CPU priority for inSync backups.
  3. Click the Laptop Backup Schedule tab.
  4. In the Laptop Backup Resources area, click Edit. The Edit Profile window appears.
  5. Move the CPU priority slider to reflect the CPU priority that you want to assign to inSync.
  6. Click Save.
