Description:
The problem? Linux has priority levels to thread all tasks at, these prio’s are ranged from -20 to +19 (negative = high prio, positive = low prio) with 0 as the default for all processes. So, this being the fact, with everything operating at prio 0, you get fights between services as to who gets what resources first.

Solution? Very simply, queue different processes at different priority levels to effectively discipline the system on who gets what resource access first. SPRI (System Priority) is a utility designed to que different processes with different priority levels based on 3 class levels of importance (high,med,low). The average load level of a server can be substantially decreased by using spri, of course results may vary.
