Can I reserve one core to system only?

I have a workflow where it sometimes renders my system unresponsive or slow. I deal with that by setting affinity of such demanding apps to only a handful of cores/threads (Core i7).

Now I am looking for a way to automate that or even set it in such way that system can only run on a dedicated core and/or at least all (future) apps can only run on all other cores.

Hello Mania_Multi,


Thank you for posting on the Intel communities. 


In this case, Intel does not have a tool that could perform this request, the only way to do it is via Windows*. Our recommendation is to check with Microsoft* to see if they have any tools or a way to perform the configuration you desire. 


Hope this information is useful, if you need any additional information, please submit a new question as this thread will no longer be monitored. 


Regards,
