After you determine the resource consumption of workloads on your system as described in Chapter 4, Extended Accounting (Overview), you can place boundaries on resource usage. Boundaries prevent workloads from over-consuming resources. The resource controls facility is the constraint mechanism that is used for this purpose.
This chapter covers the following topics.
For information about how to administer resource controls, see Chapter 7, Administering Resource Controls (Tasks).
