DO NOT modify the value of this property while an application using the configuration file has been installed as a Windows Service. Please uninstall the existing service BEFORE modifying this property. The service with the new value can then be safely reinstalled later.
This property is only used on Windows platforms.
Specifies the priority at which the Wrapper and its JVM will be run at when run as a Windows Service or as a console application.
Possible values are:
The default value is NORMAL.
Changing this property to HIGH or REALTIME makes the Wrapper and its JVM consume all available CPU first. It will only yield CPU to other processes when it does not need the cycles itself. This will cause a number of problems including an unresponsive UI (User Interface).
We have seen problems with timeouts, between the Wrapper and its JVM, when the JVM is outputting large quantities of console output and consuming CPU 100%, for long periods of time. If you change this default value and if you are experiencing such timeouts, please return the property to the default NORMAL priority before contacting our support.
Changes to the value of this property will not have any affect on the priority of the Wrapper process if the configuration is reloaded. Any restarted JVM will take on the newly configured priority however. The Wrapper must be restarted for changes to take effect on the Wrapper process.
From the Windows API, each priority level is described as follows:
