LiteManager offers a wide range of options and settings that allows you to optimize its performance in different environments. For example, if the program is installed on a slow computer or a computer under heavy load, it is advisable to minimize the CPU load. If you have a low bandwidth Internet connection or the data transmission channel is heavily loaded, it is recommended to reduce the load on the network.
The main connection mode of the program is the full control mode that is the most sensitive to slow network connections and creates increased CPU load. To adjust the program performance, open Options for Full control mode. Performance settings
- Network mode (standard or economy). You can enable it on the Network tab. Economy mode allows you to reduce the network traffic 2-5 times compared to the standard mode, but it also increase the CPU load. In local networks, where reducing traffic is not critical, this mode may slow down the program and reduce the response time of the image to your actions.
- By using Color format option (Color and CPU tab), you can set the quality of the remote screen image transferred over the network (24, 16, 15 or 8 bits). The higher the color quality is, the more realistic the image is, but the more data are transferred over the network. So it is recommended to set the image quality to the lowest value when using slow network connections.
- CPU load (low, normal, high, FPS). Color and CPU tab. This parameter sets the relative load on the CPU that significantly affects the program performance. If there is a high load, the data transfer rate will be very high. If there is a low load, the response will be received with a small delay. FPS parameter allows you to manually set the approximate number of image frames. For example, value of 1 frame per second is recommended for slow computers or slow network connections.
There are also several options under the Additional properties tab that you can use to optimize the program performance. For example, you can speed up the program performance and reduce the network traffic in Windows Vista and higher by disabling the Aero graphical interface. If there is colorful wallpaper on the desktop, you can enable Hide desktop wallpaper option to reduce network traffic and speed up the program performance.
Enable the option to capture only the window in the foreground that would speed up the work, but the background will not be captured.
Several typical network configurations
High bandwidth local area network and powerful computers
There are no weak points in this case so you can apply default settings or set the CPU load to high, the network mode to standard and color format to 24 bit.
High bandwidth Internet connection with slow computers (new generation WAN, xDSL), maybe in the office.
In this case it is advisable to set the CPU load to low or even to set FPS to the lowest value. You can also disable Aero graphical interface. Use the standard network mode for high bandwidth networks.
Slow Internet connection (EDGE, GPRS)
In this case the computer performance is not of critical importance, because data will be transferred with significant delays over low bandwidth networks. We recommend setting the color format to the low value, for example, 8 bits, to enable the economy network mode, disable Aero and hide desktop wallpapers on the remote computer, if it is possible.
