Set CPU usage for a service

hi guys

my linux bos red hat Ent 5.0 is reporting CPU usage 100% for the service/agent cimserver

basically is slows down my system and I have to kill it so my system is OK again.

my question is Can I set the CPU usage for this service? I mean can I set it to use only 4% or 10% of my CPU? or any other way to troubleshoot this 100% CPU usage. Since I've uninstalled and reinstall the agent and same issue

thanks a lot

Re: Set CPU usage for a service

hi

a) Can you set cimserver to max 10% of CPU?

Yes, use prm. Here is the trial version:

b) Note that you can turn cimserver off

I just went through this and turned cimserver off. Cimserver is associated to ICOD and SIM. If you don't need it then:

1) cimerserver -s
2) vi /etc/rc.config.d/cimerserver, set to 0
3) vi /etc/inittab, # cimserverd
4) ps -ef | grep cimserverd, kill -9

Re: Set CPU usage for a service

thanks a lot

well sorry I forgot to mention this is an IBM cimserver service so the HP won't work

I asked about setting the PCU % as a linux command or activity is that possible? at linux level?

thanks a lot
