ICE service with Windows Administator rights and ICE Timers
I have a question about running ice services with Windows Administrator rights vs. non-Administrator rights while using ICE and ICE timers. We have a ‘core’ system that runs an ice grid and ice boxes inside the IceGrid. We can start the core system with Windows Administrator privileges or with Non-Administrator privileges. We also have standalone ice applications that make direct connections (by directly specifying end points) to services in the ice boxes and direct connections between the standalone applications. One of our standalone applications runs as an Administrator and starts an ICE timer at a 5msec interval. I’ve observed when we run our core system (ice grids and ice boxes) as a Windows Administrator and the standalone application as an Administrator, the standalone application 5msec timer runs ~every 16msecs. The same is true if I change this 5msec value to 4,3,2msecs. If I change the timer value to 1msec, the timer runs every 1msec. However, if I run our core system (ice grid and ice boxes) as a non-Administrator and the standalone application as an Administrator, the standalone ICE timer runs every 5msecs (or 4, 3,2,1, etc.). I can’t find any documentation on this behavior in the documentation or forums and was wondering if this is expected or if this is something we can control? Thanks for your help.
