On a Windows 2008 server, is it possible to control/limit the amount of cpu usage a single process is allowed to use. When I have a component service process running (i.e ppt) the cpu usage runs upto 100% until the process has completed, this inturn makes the server unresponsive to other services hosted on same machine.

Would this do the job? BES
BES is a small tool which limits the CPU usage for a specified process: for instance, you can limit the CPU usage of a process which would use CPU 100%, down to 50% (or any percentage you like).

BES has a 32bit design and is not likely the best choice.

Thanks ServerStorm, I decided to try the link you suggested, and although it may not be the most comprehensive and failsafe method. It does seem to ease the percent down. Now I just get peaks and not constant levels.

Good. I think peaks are to be expected, I've never seen any type of throttling not have some type of peaks. Glad this is helping!
