Process Priority utility

As discussed on StackOverflow and ServerFault, here is a utility that can query and set the CPU, memory, and IO priority of a Win32 process (runs on XP and higher).

To see the command line usage information, run the program without any arguments.



  • Note that for Windows 8 they have added SetProcessInformation() to allow setting these priorities in a more official manner. See MSDN for details.
