RENICE(8)                                               RENICE(8)

     NAME
          renice - alter priority of running process by changing nice

     SYNOPSIS
          /etc/renice [ -pri ] pid ...

     DESCRIPTION
          Renice alters the priority of the process with process-id
          pid. The default pri is 19.  Changing the priority requires
          permission to write /proc/pid (see proc(4)), so only the
          super-user can alter an arbitrary process's priority.  Only
          the super-user can raise a process's priority.

     FILES
          /proc/pid
