CPU / Performance Limits

To set limits on users (e.g. CPU usage), use ulimit.

EXAMPLE: ulimit -t;

From the manpage: -a All current limits are reported
-c The maximum size of core files created
-d The maximum size of a process's data segment
-f The maximum size of files created by the shell
-i The maximum number of pending signals
-l The maximum size that may be locked into memory
-m The maximum resident set size
-n The maximum number of open file descriptors (most systems do not allow this value to be set)
-p The pipe size in 512-byte blocks (this may not be set)
-q The maximum number of bytes in POSIX message queues
-s The maximum stack size
-t The maximum amount of cpu time in seconds
-u The maximum number of processes available to a single user
-v The maximum amount of virtual memory available to the shell
-x The maximum number of file locks
