Not sure if this has been mentioned before, But is it possible to set limits on accounts by the CPU load.

At the moment I'am on an automated setup system through whmcs, Now I can only moniter things when I'am online Now here and there a client does install things, Like extra modules on there board which are not compatable, They dont know this but it sends there load for that account rather high.

So if this does occur I would like something what can limit the CPU to stop it affecting other users, ow to be honest I have googled and checked around here but Im unsure of what it requires and do not want to test without more knowlage.

I have found te following links.
within SSH
nano /etc/security/limits.conf
Are any of these possible and or correct.
