Is there a way to set a 'nice' priority for a particular user? Also, when I run this:
nice -n 5 /usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m 5 I get: nice: Badly formed number. I ran a man page on it, and this is the right format, but its not working. -----Original Message----- From: Chuck Swiger [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Friday, April 13, 2007 11:38 AM To: Don O'Neil Cc: [EMAIL PROTECTED]; [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Re: Mysql Hogging all system resources On Apr 12, 2007, at 1:17 PM, Don O'Neil wrote: [ ... ] > Is there a way to prioritize or set the amount of resources that MySQL > is allowed to have?

Use nice/renice to change the process priority of the MySQL server so that you don't starve other processes of CPU.... -- -Chuck _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
