Should use nice + ionice when opening automatically

Bug #334965 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas on 2009-02-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

To reduce CPU and disk load when Update Manager opens in the background, it should use nice and ionice to run at a lower priority.

(This will not affect memory consumption, which is being tackled separately.)

It may save time to fix bug 279824 at the same time as implementing this.

This is part of the Update Manager changes desired for the new notification system <>.

why not just use sudo ionice -c3 update-manager ?

no need to use both ionice and nice, since ionice is capable of doing it at once
