cpu qouta


Anyone who knows how to restrict a program's cpu usage? I want to allow a backup script to occupy let's say 50% of the total cpu capacity. Ideas how to do this in Linux? Do I have to use third part software?

I don't know hoto limit a process to % usage of the cpu, but you should not need to, since each process has an associated priority. Just set the priority level lower or higher then other processes, so that the backup program will not be aworded all time slices of the CPU by the kernel's scheduler
