: "What was their user name again?" : *click xterm click* : ps aux | grep ^user | wc -l : "Hmm, you're right, fifty processes called 'cpuwaster'." : rmuser user : "They've been eliminated, thank you for letting us know of problems you have!" : : It's called "being a sysadmin". If someone's abusing the machine, delete em.
[ Redirected to chat ] There are several points which I would like to make in response to this posting. 1) cpuwaster may be solving a significant problem. One man's cpuwaster is another man's breadandbutter. 2) Adding useful new scheduling policy options to the system allows a good sysadmin to be a better sysadmin. That's a Good Thing. 3) One man's sysadmin is another man's asshole. (Made you think, didn't I?)
