tool for limiting the CPU usage of a process
cpulimit is a simple program that attempts to limit the CPU usage of a
process (expressed in percentage, not in CPU time). This is useful to
control batch jobs, when you don't want them to eat too much CPU. It does
not act on the nice value or other priority stuff, but on the real CPU
usage. Besides it is able to adapt itself to the overall system load,
dynamically and quickly.
README for LimitCPU
LimitCPU is a program to throttle the CPU cycles used by other applications.
LimitCPU will monitor a process and make sure its CPU usage stays at or
below a given percentage. This can be used to make sure your system
has plenty of CPU cycles available for other tasks. It can also be used
to keep laptops cool in the face of CPU-hungry processes and fo
