Windows System Resource Manager

Windows System Resource Manager (WSRM) can be used in 2 modes. Firstly, it allows application profiling, which helps identify the amount of resources (e.g. CPU, memory etc) that the applications consume.

Secondly, it can also operate in manage mode. WSRM uses its allocation policies to control how many resources applications can use on a server. If applications exceed the allocation, WSRM can be stop the applications from executing and make sure other applications can continue to operate. However, WSRM will not enforce the resource policies until the processor usage exceeds 70 percent.

WSRM can be assigned to manage 3 objects, namely processes, users and IIS application pools. WSRM is available for download for Windows 2003 and is available as a feature to be added in Windows 2008.
