Nice (pronounced /na is/) is a program that’s found within Linux.
Nice directly maps to a kernel call of the same name. For any
given process, it changes the priority in the kernel’s scheduler. A
niceness of −20 is the highest priority and 19 is the lowest priority.
The default niceness for any process is inherited from its parent
process, usually 0.

The new files are rolled into the installation files so they will
be available on new systems. They can also be pushed or
updated to older systems via secure ftp and then run from the

actions, whether they are started at boot, and a short description
for each.

 2. INITIATING THE SYSTEM
Webmin Administration - Limited Version

Introduction to Processes
Every program, process or command running on a Linux system
is a process. At any time, there are dozens of processes running
on your system, some for programs that you are interacting with
graphically, some for commands that you have started at a shell
prompt, some for servers running in the background, and some that
perform system tasks. Every time you type a command like ls or vi
at the shell prompt, a new process is created, only to exit as soon
as its job is done.

Each process is identified by a unique ID, known as the PID or
process ID. Each is owned by a single user and is a member of
multiple groups, which determine the privileges that the process
has. And each has a priority (also known as the nice level), which
controls how much CPU time the process can use up on a busy
system. Almost every process has a parent, which is the process
that started it, and from which it inherits ownership, priority, and
other settings. A process will run until it chooses to exit, or until it
is killed by a signal from another process.

The Running Processes Module
This module can be used to view, kill, re-prioritize, and run
processes on your system. When you enter it for the first time from
the System category, the main page will display a tree of processes
as shown below.

You must change a couple of network settings, but they are not
difficult if you take a couple of minutes to understand what is
going on.

Cable Drawings
All network 10/100 baseT cables use 8-conductor, unshielded
twisted-pair (UTP) wire. Category 5 wiring should be free of tight
kinks and should be protected from pinches caused by fasteners,
staples, cable ties, etc. Loose excess cabling must not be coiled up
in loops. A cable from the hub to a PC may not exceed 328 feet in
length.

                                                                       Step 4a: Reconnect the power to the WCC III-MCD

   Step 1: Properly shut down the WCC III - MCD computer.

   Step 2: Insert the additional non-volatile Compact Flash
   (CF) card to the CF card holder in the back of the Single
   Board Computer PCI-6881 circuit board. CF cards can supply
   additional storage that will behave much as a hard drive does
   in a typical PC with a 2GB size currently installed in the
   WCC III-MCD. These Compact Flash products are inherently
   more rugged than a hard drive since they are completely
   solid-state with no moving parts. The Compact Flash hard
   drive acts as a secure data back up for the WCC III - MCD
   computer.

   Step 3: The BACKTASK program will make a new
   subdirectory on the Compact Flash drive every month that is
   based on a month / year file structure. In this “month / year”
   subdirectory that is created every month, you will find the last     Step 4c: Right click on Disk Management.
   daily data files back up for the month – either on the 28th, 30th,
   or 31st, depending on the month. The Compact Flash hard
   drive in the WCC III - MCD stores the BACKTASK data
   files on it every day at midnight. Also, the current identical
   files will also co-exist in the BACKTASK subdirectory on the
   WCC III - MCD.

   Step 4: All of the Satellite data will need to be retrieved
   from the WCC Utilities Program. The Satellite data is usually
   in the specific jobsite subdirectory, because the WCC III-
   MCD BACKTASK Program does not store these files. These
   files can be downloaded and then saved from any of the pre-
   existing SAT III type controllers at the jobsite.

   The 2GB Compact Flash card has the added advantage of
   being removable media. A Compact Flash reader with writer
   device may be needed at the host PC for file transfers. This
   results in the ability to quickly move files from a host PC to
   the WCC III - MCD using a Compact Flash card as the
   removable media.
