this is what well written software should do:
use the available ressources and in case of
multicore use as much cores as possible

[harry at rh:~]$ rpm -q cpulimit

[harry at rh:~]$ cpulimit --help
Usage: cpulimit TARGET [OPTIONS...]
   TARGET must be exactly one of these:
      -p, --pid=N        pid of the process
      -e, --exe=FILE     name of the executable program file
      -P, --path=PATH    absolute path name of the executable program file
      -l, --limit=N      percentage of cpu allowed from 0 to 100 (mandatory)
      -v, --verbose      show control statistics
      -z, --lazy         exit if there is no suitable target process, or if it dies
      -h, --help         display this help and exit
