Excuse me, butthis IS a stupid question. I've tried to
figure it out logically and by experimentation; just want to
see if my findings jib with the unix wizards onlist.
Now/then i do a portupgrade; I probably should just cron
this, but it has given me problems before, so I do it while I
can monitor the run.
# portupgrade -akOPv
then go ahead and work on other things. Question is What do
I renice the run at [ruby] to set it to low at very
low-power? I've tried like -17 and +17 (or just 17) because
I learned that nice'ing the prio level higher than 0 was giving
it a lower prio. Thus the rest of what I was doing could run
anmost unaffected. Sometimes I'll be running a vi or two
with portupgrade the Only other thing running [compiling,
usually], and my editing is extremely slow.
So what renice value should i use [normally]? Another
question is for if i ever decide to cron portupgrade every
week or so. What nice values is best?
