I know everyone has worked hard on scheduling, etc and I appreciate all
they've done. I'd just love to see process have a "throttle" attribute
such that they are limited to how much of various resources they are
allowed to consume. (Maybe this is already in the new schedulers ?) It
would than be nice if cron jobs had a throttle parameter. (I know about
There would be nothing wrong with cron jobs such as prelink running at
10 to 30% cpu for 10 minutes or so.
Prelink just ran on my new fc3rc3 installation. It took about 5 minutes
at high CPU usage. I believe this is the first time it ran on the new
installation. I can't say if yesterday's episode was warranted or not.
I'll assume it was until I see something that appears out of the

Thanks god for multitasking. It usually last something like 5 minutes.
This is on core 2, and i think core 1 was similar.
Another überannoying cronjob, is the updatedb one. whytheh*** does
anacron have to run it?!? It also takes about 5 minutes, and it is
almost impossible to lauch programs in a resonable time when it is
