+What:          /sys/kernel/uids/<uid>/cpu_shares

+               The /sys/kernel/uids/<uid>/cpu_shares tunable is used
+               to set the cpu bandwidth a user is allowed. This is a
+               propotional value. What that means is that if there
+               are two users logged in, each with an equal number of
+               shares, then they will get equal CPU bandwidth. Another
+               example would be, if User A has shares = 1024 and user
+               B has shares = 2048, User B will get twice the CPU
+               bandwidth user A will. For more details refer
+               Documentation/sched-design-CFS.txt
