Workload management software

Im wondering if anyone has any recommendations they could make concerning workload management software ?

Imagine i have two workloads (applications) running on a system and at certain times of the day, I want one to be able to operate using higher CPU / disk IO etc than the other.

I could re prioritise the programs. However, I am thinking I would like to be able to set how much resource each workload uses.

For example

Workload 1

upto 70% CPU
up n% memory
n disk i/O
n network sockets.

Workload 2

upto 30% CPU
n% of memory
n disk i/o
n network sockets

Anyone have any ideas ? I would be looking for this to run on redhat 3 and 4 AS.

Code is under development to do this. Currently in a major state of flux - I think I saw the latest base patchset a couple of days back.
Don't expect to see it in the mainline kernel anytime soon. Redhat will be later still.

Keep an eye on the kernel changelog for "containers".
