Re: limiting user %cpu
OK, so I suck..
Here's my postulate.. CPU time could be what you need. I would imagine that CPU
time would refer to the percentage of time that the user's processes will be
actively payed attention to by the system's kernel. Sort of like an old
time-slicing multi-tasking method of limiting user demand on the CPU.
What experiences have you had so far setting the values of CPU time?
