stupid docker tricks #239192

1) Limit max processes on container; unfortunately docker seems intent on me not doing docker stupid tricks, so this is actually a bit of a pain on some systems… but if you figure out/etc/security/limits.conf, or can use prlimit (or write your own; use RLIMIT_NPROC instead of RLIMIT_NOFILE), you can do “prlimit –pid 666 –nproc=3:3” to limit the processes on the system to a very small number.

Ran across one of the all time great command line arguments while working with virtualbox’s VBoxManage: –eula accept Yes, my perl program accepts your EULA. Now go away…. (Los Lobos is in the house, hence the title)
