Please explain "niceness"
« on: 2015-05-28, 02:55:11 AM »
Could someone please explain the niceness setting in TMUX.
I've been trying 19, and then nothing appears. -20 shows alot and seems to work.
But could someone explain the differences, maybe with screenshots

Values of +/-19 are rather excessive. +/-5 should be fine depending on what else is running and what you're trying to acheive.

You can think of it like the process priority in Windows.
