Description Ondrej Valousek 2010-05-06 11:33:20 UTC
Description of problem:
Situation: I have a Linux terminal server where multiple users log-in remotely. I need to limit every user to certain cpu/memory resources so he/she can not hog the machine.
Now the cgred daemon can do this task for me, but I would have to create a dedicated control group for every user manually for this to work.

Idea: Can be cgred daemon configured the way that for every user in some unix group that logs in, a new control group is created automatically (following a template) and every process the user launches is started in that group?

Does it make a sense?
