How do I activate limits.conf
Ok, forget the other questions...
I've set limits in limits.conf but they don't seem to be having an effect (the easiest to test is maxlogins). Do I need to do something to enable the limits?
EDIT: old post
I know you can have file system quotas, is there any way to set a similar quota for CPU usage for particular users so that they can't hog all the system resources (either intentionally or accidentally)?
A preliminary Google search is suggesting it's not possible, but I can't believe that.
Ok, limits.conf and pam... I used bad search terms apparently. Now I just need to figure out how to use this stuff, but that shouldn't be an issue.
