      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

using cpulimit

Recommended Posts

Have anyone tried this piece of software? very cool.


This software helps controlling the cpu usage of a certain process or application.


http://cpulimit.sourceforge.net/ or install it via urpmi.


Usage: cpulimit TARGET [OPTIONS...]

TARGET must be exactly one of these:

-p, --pid=N pid of the process

-e, --exe=FILE name of the executable program file

-P, --path=PATH absolute path name of the executable program file


-l, --limit=N percentage of cpu allowed from 0 to 100 (mandatory)

-v, --verbose show control statistics

-z, --lazy exit if there is no suitable target process, or if it dies

-h, --help display this help and exit



- It helps me a lot especially on using dynamips (cisco emulator) and pemu (pix firewall emu) on my mandriva. Very cool.
