Hey Allan and Benedict, As always, love the show. Quick question for you: Is it possible to set a nice(3) value (or similar) for a jail or set of jails such that when they're started, they get a higher priority for CPU time? I can't seem to find anything online or in man pages for this. I looked at racct/rctl, but that seems more for resource constraints than priority. An example use case: 1. I have a poudriere jail for building ports - This should take a back burner, I don't really care how long it takes to chug 2. I have a PostgreSQL jail - This thing needs to be snappy! High priority. 3. Webserver - also high-pri, but less than postgres for dependency reasons. ...etc. Am I missing something or is this just not easy to do? I'm sure I could write a little helper script to crawl the process table & renice stuff, but that feels dirty and wouldn't pounce on new threads/processes immediately. Thanks & keep on casting! Excited about the 12 RELEASE.
