About This Guide

The Adaptive Partitioning User's Guide will help you set up and use adaptive partitioning to divide system resources in a flexible way between competing processes.

Note: In order to use adaptive partitioning, you must install the Adaptive Partitioning Technology Development Kit.

This guide is intended for software developers of individual applications, as well as for developers who are responsible for the overall time or throughput behavior of the entire system. In general, you need to consider the entire system when you set partition budgets, window sizes, and other parameters.
