CPU utilization

I have some process is running in the system , some of them use over 90% CPU time , I want the system not to be burden by this high CPU utilization process , can advise is it possible to limit the max. of CPU utilization of any process to 50% , so that other user can share the system resource ?

YOu could look at "nice" command and renice a process to give it a lower/or higher priority. Check out man pages on nice and renice commands. Enjoy!
