Each resource control listed in Figure 1, Table 1, Standard Project, Task, and Process Resource Controls can be assigned to a project at login or when newtask, su, or the other project-aware launchers at, batch, or cron are invoked. Each command that is initiated is launched in a separate task with the invoking user's default project. See the man pages login(1), newtask(1), at(1), cron(8), and su(8) for more information.
Updates to entries in the project database, whether to the /etc/project file or to a representation of the database in a network name service, are not applied to currently active projects. The updates are applied when a new task joins the project through login or newtask.
