**The constant OS\_WIN must be defined.**
`/prefetch:#` arguments to use when launching various process types. It has been observed that when file reads are consistent for 3 process launches with the same `/prefetch:#` argument, the Windows prefetcher starts issuing reads in batch at process launch. Because reads depend on the process type, the prefetcher wouldn't be able to observe consistent reads if no `/prefetch:#` arguments were used. Note that the browser process has no `/prefetch:#` argument; as such all other processes must have one in order to avoid polluting its profile. Note: # must always be in [1, 8]; otherwise it is ignored by the Windows prefetcher.

notes <<-'END'
**The constant OS\_WIN must be defined.**
`/prefetch:#` argument shared by all process types that don't have their own. It is likely that the prefetcher won't work for these process types as it won't be able to observe consistent file reads across launches. However, having a valid prefetch argument for these process types is required to prevent them from interfering with the prefetch profile of the browser process.
