HOWTO : Lower CPU Loading With ulimit on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

ulimit can change the number of process on Linux. One of the features is to lower the CPU loading with it when you have a low end CPU. The lower the CPU loading the lower the CPU temperature.

sudo nano /etc/security/limits.conf

Append the following lines at the end of the file.

* soft nproc 10240
root soft nproc 10240

You can replace "10240" up to "65535".

That's all! See you.
