limit CPU on a per user basis?


similar to how quota sets usage and limits on disks on a per user basis....is there a way to restrict CPU utilization on a per user basis? in other words, can I mandate that no process owned by jdoe can ever consume more than 10% of the CPU? better yet, can I mandate that all of the processes owned by jdoe will never collectively consume more than 10% of the CPU?

any help appreciated.

Im using the stuff from /etc/security/limits.conf.

Else you end up with ulimit, or hacking the kernel (tasks.h) for tkat really "BOFH/fascist mode" control of max task & thread limits :-]
