Start and Stop Resource Management

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Start resource management

When Windows System Resource Manager is installed, the Windows System Resource Manager Management Status is set to RUNNING, and Equal_Per_Process is set by default as the managing policy. If the Dynamic Fair Share Session (DFSS) or Kernel Resource Manager (KRM) bit is set in the registry, Weighted_Remote_Sessions is set by default as the managing policy. When Weighted_Remote_Sessions is set as the managing policy, CPU quota allocation will be performed independently of the status of Windows System Resource Manager.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To start resource management
  1. Open Windows System Resource Manager. To open Windows System Resource Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Windows System Resource Manager.

  2. In the Connect to Computer dialog box, select This computer, and then click Connect.

  3. In the console pane, click Windows System Resource Manager Management Status: STOPPED. The Windows System Resource Manager Properties dialog box opens.

  4. On the Management tab, in the Management state list, select Running.

  5. In the Management type list, select Manage.

    noteNote
    If you want to collect data about when resources would be in contention, but you do not want to manage resources actively, select Profile in the Management type list.

  6. In the Current resource allocation policy list, select the resource allocation policy that you want to use to manage your resources, and then click OK.

noteNote
To use the Calendar to define resource allocation policies, see Scheduling Resource Management with the Calendar.

Stop resource management

Windows System Resource Manager will manage resources according to the management type and resource allocation policy that you select until you stop management (unless the Calendar has been used to schedule management).

When management is stopped, running processes are not managed and accounting records are not generated. However, you can perform administrative tasks and generate notifications. Any changes that you make while management is stopped will not take effect until management is restarted.

ImportantImportant
If Weighted_Remote_Sessions is set as the managing policy, running processes continue to be managed, even if the Windows System Resource Manager Management Status is set to STOPPED.

To stop resource management
  1. Open Windows System Resource Manager. To open Windows System Resource Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Windows System Resource Manager.

  2. In the Connect to Computer dialog box, select This computer, and then click Connect.

  3. In the console pane, click Windows System Resource Manager Management Status: RUNNING. The Windows System Resource Manager Properties dialog box opens.

  4. On the Management tab, in the Management state list, select Stopped, and then click OK.

Additional considerations

  • To manage resources, the Windows System Resource Manager feature must be installed and the Windows System Resource Manager service must be running. For more information, see Install Windows System Resource Manager.
