Limit CPU usage for an application/process
Authored by: ehlers on Feb 02, '11 11:48:26AM

Have a look at cputhrottle (http://www.willnolan.com/cputhrottle/cputhrottle.html). It's made for Mac OS X.

Tested it with 10.6.6, works fine.

Thanks for this. I'll try it with Handbrake.

cputhrottle seems to be the better of the choices i've tried. It doesn't seem to work as smoothly as cpulimit does on linux, but it's certainly a workable solution. I used it all the time.
