    Are there any libraries or programs which block further process execution depending on a current execution limit?

    I want to give users the ability to run a script which is intensive but i dont want to bring down my server if 1000's of instances are run at once.

    PAM is capable of doing just that, and PAM ships with almost every linux distro out there look at the file
    Code:
    /etc/security/limits.conf
    to see how it is configured
