There’s a critical program on your system that has known memory leaks. It needs to be restarted on a regular basis to free up resources.
Another critical program occasionally hangs or goes into the ‘not responding’ state. It needs to be restarted quickly when this happens – even during the night when there’s no one on the premises.
How to do it …
- Open up PTFB Pro’s main window by clicking on its tray icon
- Click on “New Macro…” and choose “ProgMon Macro”
- Select the program in the resulting list and hit Next
- Choose “Restart the program ONLY if it is not responding” and set the frequency of the check (make this as long as you’re comfortable with). Hit Next
- The next page deals with how the program will be terminated when it has become unresponsive. By default, PTFB Pro choose “Forced Exit” and ticks “Only terminate program if it is not responding. Unless you have good reason to do otherwise, just hit Next to take these defaults.
- The final page deals with relaunching the program. Again, you can usually just take the defaults and hit “Finish” but if you want to make changes you can.
You may wish to tweak your new macro’s settings after you’ve created it. If so, just double-click on the new macro in PTFB Pro’s main window and work through its tabbed Properties screen.
