The Cap Processor Usage patch (or CPU patch for short) is a modification to the Linux kernel that allows you to limit the amount of CPU power any given task can get. Unlike the ulimit command, it does not limit total time a task can run. Instead it limits the percentage of the CPU's time that the task can get. It also differs from the nice command, as it does not change the priority of the task.
