5	Description:
6			The /sys/kernel/uids/<uid>/cpu_shares tunable is used
7			to set the cpu bandwidth a user is allowed. This is a
8			propotional value. What that means is that if there
9			are two users logged in, each with an equal number of
10			shares, then they will get equal CPU bandwidth. Another
11			example would be, if User A has shares = 1024 and user
12			B has shares = 2048, User B will get twice the CPU
13			bandwidth user A will. For more details refer
