I am not asking how to nice and renice a command on UNIX.
What happens is that on a particular machine into which I frequently log I am only allowed to run long-running processes with low priority (nice 19). Is there a way for all my commands on this machine to run as if I had "niced 19" them?
Inevitably I forget to prefix the command with "nice 19" when I start it, then need to go muck around in ps/top to locate the pid of my resource-hogging process and then renice it. Too much trouble, and I risk annoying the sysadmin; is there a way to do this by default?
many thanks! ~l
