Run fixed number of processes, and start a new process when one closes

Recommended Posts



I've searched the forum, but without much luck. I wish to have a script, that starts 10 backup processes, and then watches those and as soon as 1 closes a new one is started. I have about 80 processes I wish to schedule using this method. Could this be done?

Right now I use ProcessWaitClose, and checks for the last process to close, and the starts 10 new ones. This is just a bit of a waste time and performance wise.

Welcome to the forums.

There are plenty of ways to accomplish this, especially if you wrote the backup processes.

Try counting the backup processes with ProcessList and launch a new one whenever it drops below 10.
