10.5: Set CPU usage limit per Parallels virtual machine
Authored by: john_g on Apr 08, '09 01:47:59PM

You can use cpu-limit from inside>Contents->MacOS
usage is:
cpu-limit percentage(without %) process_pid
for example
cpu-limit 30 3455 (where 30 is percentage, 3455 is pid for Virtual Box VM)
Please note, I didn't test it personally, but I am working in this direction

To stop limiting
kill -s SIGTERM pid (for now pid is cpu-limit process pid)

Please note, when limiting, it is not suitable for playing games, or video,music, just to limit cpu usage for long term intensive tasks
