hi,

also note that to be able to alter the system nice value of another user's process, you must have appropriate privileges.

You can indeed change the nice value of your own processes easily.

hope this helps too!

kind regards

I wrote a script based on a script that I had seen. You need to be root to change other's values. The script is called reniceit.
