AutoIT or Windows - Internal Resources like CPU / Memory

Recommended Posts

Good Morning AutoIT Geniuses!  :sorcerer:

Maybe this question is answered somewhere already... but I'm looking to ramp up the priority or "speed" of my exe's.

So, I've been experimenting and I don't see a huge increase in completion regardless of the processor or memory I use.

Sure, if I increase the memory I don't run out of memory, but if I increase memory - things relatively stay the same... why is that?

In another scenario for instance, I put the exe on a Dell server w/ 24 GB of ram and several quad core Xeon cpu's and the time to execute was relatively the same...

Oh, and the CPU never spiked or went above 5%... even after I stepped up it's priority. >_<

That seemed impossible - so I'm asking - is AutoIT mostly responsible for system resources used or is it on Windows? I used WIndows 7 x64 and Windows Server 2012.

Clueless as to what the guts are behind AutoIT and how Windows hands the exe's resources or how AutoIT "tells" Windows how to handle it's resources.

This day in age, we have quad cores +++ and then some... so this app should be screaming fast - it's not like I'm playing Crysis in 8K - haha, lol.

:laser:

It's doubtful an autoit script will use more than 1 core of your cpu, unless windows deems it necessary.

You should report your post to be moved, it has nothing to do with autoit support..

Needs multi-threading support and address reservations - the best Autoit can do is change a thread/executable priority by it's 'Nice' level.

Well, it's definitely not Windows. =) AutoIt was never built with the intention to be fast. It is built to be flexible, portable and convenient for a particular use case. That doesn't mean automatically AutoIt is to blame for your speed problem, but it's not exactly helping you there either.

The speed of your program depends on what you're doing in your AutoIt code. Perhaps you're going about solving your problem very inefficiently and you can improve that. In order of us to help with that, you will have to share some more details about what exactly it is that you're doing.

If you've definitely ruled out that your program is simply inefficient, you can consider offloading harder tasks into a AutoIt loadable dll written in a language such as C++. It's also a consideration to write everything in another language, which won't solve your efficiency problem, but might make it less of a problem. If you're not already familiar in another language ideal for this purpose, I wouldn't recommend this as a potential starting point.

      I was running my script and everything was working fine and then it just stopped working. 
      I got this error message:

      I am going through the AutoIt Wiki and soaking up a lot of great information.  On the “Best Coding Practices” page at https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Best_coding_practices#Scopes_of_Variables there seems to be a minor detail missing.  In the “Variable Initialization” section at https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Best_coding_practices#Variable_Initialization , there are references to a data type $o, but in the table listing prefixes and their data types, there does not appear to be a prefix “o”.  I assume that this is for Object?

      I have searched for almost an hour and I still cannot find examples and or the code that I am looking for concerning my question. 
      I am wanting to capture/read/send (however you want to say it) the console output to a file.
      Here is a picture of what I want to send to a file after the script runs. (what is in the console output/window after the script runs)

      Here is my code: Currently it finds all the unread, subject restricted emails in the inbox and its subfolders. (finds 15 when it should only find 4)
      $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, $mFolder[1], $olMail, "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "Maintenance Request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) I want to find the emails in the inbox but I don't want to include the emails from the inbox's sub-folders.
