How to Set Linux Process Priority Using nice and renice Commands

Hitesh Jethva October 29, 2021 by under Tutorials, VPS Hosting 0 Comments

Nice is a command-line utility in Linux that allows you to set the “niceness” value of processes. It is used to start a process with a defined priority. When you start any program or process without any defined priority, nice sets a default priority of 10. A niceness of 19 is the lowest priority while -20 is the highest priority. The nice command is very useful when several processes are demanding more resources than the CPU can provide.

Renice is very similar to nice and is used to change the priority of an already running process. If your system is running very slow due to a lengthy process, you can reduce or increase the priority of that process with the help of renice command.

Priority is a value that you can assign to each process, and the kernel uses this value to schedule the execution of the process.

  • 0-99 is the priority value used for real-time priority assignments.
  • 100-139 is the priority value that the users assign.

In this post, we will show you how to set Linux Process Priority with Nice and renice command.
