I have another one of those programs that I’m not really sure why I would need it.
I can see the how, and I know the what, but the why eludes me. Regardless, this is cpulimit.
I get the general gist: cpulimit chokes the CPU usage of a process. I did my best to show it in action there, but Firefox had already loaded the page by the time the screenshot snapped.
It did stay under 50 percent, which was the limit I gave it. Whether that’s because of cpulimit or because of dumb luck, I can’t say.
So best I can tell, it works. I know what it’s for, I know how to use it.
But I honestly am not sure when I would put this to use. The home page says batch processing, but usually I’m trying to power through my batch processing, not limit it.
Oh well. There are many things about computers that I don’t understand. I can add one more to the list and it won’t make me feel like less of a person. 😉
