Set low priority for external tools

Question asked by dranakan on Jun 5, 2013

I see that externals tools like convert.bin or .pdf2swf run with the same priority than Alfresco. Some processes could take time and Alfresco could be slower.

For example, we can set a low priority for pdf2swf by adding nice in front of the command :

swf.exe=nice -9 /opt/Alfresco/common/bin/pdf2swf

Are they problems to set lower priorty to external commands ? Why is it not done by default ?

Thank you.
