Windows 7: chrome renderer process limit

02 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 32 bit
chrome renderer process limit

Just wondering if anyone is playing around with chrome command line switch


I'm running chromium 21.x and by default I seem to run a process per tab, plus a process per enabled extension, plus one or two more.

Currently I'm using --renderer-process-limit=4

Now it seems no mappter how many tabs I have open or enabled extensions, it doesn't go above 7 running chrome.exe processes in Task Manager.

I don't notice any slowdown.

Anyone else experimenting with this setting?

there's also another switch to run it all in 1 process...

I'm gonna test both of these.


There are switches also for process per site and such.
