My special laptop tends to overheat and shutdown under Linux unless I
cpulimit demanding programs. Would there be a problem with using
cpulimit to limit
Basically, the target process, which you can specify by pid, name, or command line, is continuosly paused and resumed by sending it SIGSTOP and SIGCONT signals. Signals are sent by cpulimit in appropriate moments, based on the limit specified by user and the process statistics read from /proc.
