Resource management

Hi all,

we have a big problem, we are running an IA-64 linux system, with 8 CPUs and some GB of RAM, for user usage.
The user are compiling and testing programs on this system, and this caused some problems.

Sometimes, a user program used the hole memory, blocks the other users, and also blocked the hole system.
Even root was not able to login, and kill this prcess -(

Do you have an idea, how to restrict the system usage, for example by memory or CPU time for each user ?

Or can we reserve for example 5 % system ressources for the root user, so in such a case, root can login and kill this process ??

Thnx / Regards
