VeryNice is a tool for dynamically adjusting the nice level of processes under UNIX-like operating systems. It can also kill off runaway processes and increase the priority of multimedia applications, while properly handling both batch computation jobs and interactive applications with long periods of high CPU usage. Unlike most other process renice tools, VeryNice is not only capable of lowering a CPU-bound process's priority, but of raising the priority when the process is no longer heavily using the CPU.
