Despite the considerable sophistication of today’s programs, processes, CPUs and
operating systems, it is still fairly common for resource conflicts to occur. This
can be especially true of background processes that are designed to run while other
tasks are being performed.
Virus scans and other types of jobs can create enough of an impact that they must
be stopped and then run when few to no users are on the system.
Such opportunities may not exist in today’s business models and computing environments,
however. With increasing demands that businesses and systems operate continuously,
“time frame” in which to run such programs may rarely if ever occur.
The choice then becomes to not run the programs at all, or to proceed to launch
them despite user activity. In such instances, background processes must be run
no matter the impact on the system, with the hope that the system isn’t slowed down
to the extent that users and other important processes are seriously impacted.

The Key to Seamless Background Processing
Diskeeper® data performance technology
is a background process that is vitally important to the performance and reliability
of computers and processes. For this reason, Condusiv Technologies developed
InvisiTasking® technology —a revolutionary innovation that actually improves
the scheduler in the operating system so that usual overhead associated with this
type of program can be avoided. InvisiTasking means that Diskeeper runs with zero
InvisiTasking operates by monitoring the CPU, I/O and networking within a system.
As these resources become available—meaning not needed by a process or user—they
are utilized for the execution of small tasks. As higher-priority processes require
the resources, the task or tasks are immediately sidelined so that absolutely no
resource contention occurs.
Since its development, InvisiTasking has been utilized by Condusiv Technologies
in many other products, in addition to its flagship product Diskeeper.
In V-locity® 4 VM accelerator, InvisiTasking allows the product’s
numerous operations in optimizing virtual platform performance to work seamlessly
in the background. InvisiTasking allows Undelete® real-time data protection and recovery
to operate transparently in its file protection tasks.
HyperBoot® instant-on technology
product software utilize InvisiTasking in relation to
their system boot plan and cache management. InvisiTasking brings the same smooth,
invisible, no-conflict operation to all of these products for their background procedures.
InvisiTasking provides substantial benefit to any application that must operate
in the background and must not conflict with ongoing processing. It is a state-of-the-art
technology for the dovetailing of a program seamlessly so that there are no resource
conflicts in the implementation of that program.
“My favorite feature has to be InvisiTasking … I don't even know it's there. It
just works! It's automatic and I don't have to worry about it. It does its job without
interfering with mine.”
- Doug Kalian, Large Healthcare Insurance
“Once InvisiTasking was running I could see that the disk was accessed at times
but could not notice the overhead without looking at the graph.”
- Brian Westerman
“I'm impressed by how non-resource-intensive it is; the InvisiTasking really works
- James Ingram, Wellpoint Health Networks, Inc.
