Sig process signaling utility


Selective process management using signals and renice: Sig is typically run via Cron.
Processes can be selected by name, UID(s), login group(s) and/or resource usage:
System-wide resource usage can be taken into account before processes are scanned.

A signal, or signal sequence, can be delivered to the targeted processes and
the results thereof logged. Alternatively the system nice value can be altered.

Sig is rather OS version dependent. It is tried and tested under HP-UX and Fedora.
