Oooh don't I wish. I would even settle for ulimit, if it actually truly did what I want it to to do.
The closest thing I could find is maximum number of seconds thread is allowed to hold on CPU.
So what, do I increase the seconds to reduce number of switches between threads(which could be potentially eating up the CPU)
or decrease the number of seconds in order to increase the switches between threads because some particular threads are eating up the cpu.
All in all a very confusing parameter. Everything else seems to be memory related.
