NAME
       plimit -	get or set the resource	limits of running processes

SYNOPSIS
       plimit [-km] pid...

       plimit {-cdfnstv} soft,hard... pid...

DESCRIPTION
       If  one	or  more  of the cdfnstv options is specified, plimit sets the
       soft (current) limit and/or the hard (maximum) limit of	the  indicated
       resource(s)  in	the  processes identified by the process-ID list, pid.
       Otherwise plimit	reports	the resource limits of the  processes  identi-
       fied by the process-ID list, pid.

       Only  the  owner	 of a process or the super-user	is permitted either to
       get or to set the resource limits of a process. Only the	super-user can
       increase	the hard limit.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -k	On  output,  show  file	sizes in kilobytes (1024 bytes)	rather
		than in	512-byte blocks.

       -m	On output, show	file and memory	sizes in megabytes  (1024*1024
		bytes).

       The remainder of	the options are	used to	change specified resource lim-
       its. They each accept an	argument of the	form:

	      soft,hard

       where soft specifies the	soft (current) limit and  hard	specifies  the
       hard (maximum) limit. If	the hard limit is not specified, the comma may
       be omitted. If the soft limit is	an empty string, only the  hard	 limit
       is set. Each limit is either the	literal	string unlimited, or a number,
       with an optional	scaling	factor,	as follows:

       nk	n kilobytes

       nm	n megabytes (minutes for CPU time)

       nh	n hours	(for CPU time only)

       mm:ss	minutes	and seconds (for CPU time only)

       The soft	limit cannot exceed the	hard limit.

       -c soft,hard    Set core	file size limits  (default  unit  is  512-byte
		       blocks).

       -d soft,hard    Set  data  segment  (heap) size limits (default unit is
		       kilobytes).

       -f soft,hard    Set file	size limits (default unit is 512-byte blocks).

       -n soft,hard    Set file	descriptor limits (no default unit).

       -s soft,hard    Set stack segment size limits (default  unit  is	 kilo-
		       bytes).

       -t soft,hard    Set CPU time limits (default unit is seconds).

       -v soft,hard    Set  virtual  memory size limits	(default unit is kilo-
		       bytes).

OPERANDS
       The following operands are supported.

       pid	Process	ID list.

EXIT STATUS
       plimit returns the exit value zero  on  success,	 non-zero  on  failure
       (such as	no such	process, permission denied, or invalid option).

FILES
       /proc/pid/*     process information and control files
