PSAESRV is Application Engine server processes that handles Application Engine requests
PSAE is an executable that executes the application engine request.

PeopleSoft conducted a study and shown that PSAE is just as good as PSAESRV for most practical purposes. If you have an AE job that runs longer than 10 sec, PSAE is equivalent to PSAESRV. PSAE has the added advantage of being recycled at the end of each AE job, cleaning up any outstanding SQL cursors to the database that may have been left behind. Since PSAE recycles after each use, it does not has any possible memory leakage problem that may occupied the precious system memory. In short, PSAE is a cleaner workhorse.

To shutdown PSAESRV, when you configure the Process Scheduler, you can change the default of the PSAESRV instance to 0.
Values for config section – PSAESRV
Max Instances =0
Recycle Count=1000
Allowed Consec Service Failures=2

    How does this work? You change Max Instances to 0 and then you can’t start the Process monitor.

    You can always disable the PSAESRV server processes from PSADMIN. In 8.5X releases in Quick config menu 1st option is application engine, you can enable to disable it.
    In older releases there is option under psadmin “Do you want to configure the application Engines” . you make it to 1 or 0 to enable or disable. once you make this enable then the Max instances under psprcs.cfg will come into picture.

    So can always start the process scheduler by enabling or disabling this parameter.
