#1303 new Feature Requests

Per-target resource limits.

Reported by: René Rivera Owned by: Vladimir Prus
Milestone: Boost.Jam 4.0.0 Component: build
Version: Severity: Not Applicable
Keywords: Cc:


The -lN options is a nice addition, but it's a rather blunt tool. Martin is wanting a system where one can limit the resources used by individual actions. Currently he does something like it on Linux with the use of a launcher script. It would be good to provide that functionality in a portable manner in bjam. Tasks would be:

  • RLIMIT_CPU, RLIMIT_DATA, etc. target variables.
  • Change current time limit code to check the RLIMIT_CPU target var and using that instead of the -lN value.
  • Implement other limits as possible.
