so I'm curious I'm running cm 10 and I was wondering if there was a way to keep background processes at just 4, I don't really use more then that at a time....
Here is a common definition of a background process:
"A background process is a program that is running without user input. A number of background processes can be running on a multitasking operating system, such as Linux, while the user is interacting with the foreground process Some background processes, such as daemons, for example, never require user input.
I am running an application which is very timing sensitive, and which has to be ran for quite a time just for precise [average] values to be determined.
But, as I am aware of, there are interfering processes here and there in the background, which jobs are to enrich the experience of the user -- such as update notifications (happens once a day), backup-management reminders (happens once in a wh
I am trying to do safe process killing for salvaging memory. Is it safe to kill all background processes in a an activity by calling either ActivityManager.killBackgroundProcesses or IActivityManager.killAllBackgroundProcesses? I know it is painful in case one of the killed processes needs to be restarted, but is it safe?
I have a shell script that is supposed to run multiple processes one after the other. It runs 3 processes simultaneously in the background, waits for them to finish and then runs 3 more processes, and so on. It has to do that 12 times.
My problem is that once the first 3 processes finish, the original script also terminates. Can you tell me why that is happening?
To start with, I am a beginner to programming etc so apologies for lack of professionally accurate terminology in my question but hopefully I will manage to get my points across!
Would you have any suggestions how in bash or tcsh I can run a long background process which itself launches a few programs and has to run three long processes in parallel on different cores and wait for all three to be
