Is it per user and across all of his/her current processes or do the limits apply only to process started from one invocation of the shell.

comment Capping system resources available to users
Thanks, I was exploring this option before posting. What I could not find was over what instance are these limits applied. For instance IF there is a memory cap, does that cap the sum total of all memory across all of the users process at an instant ? Or is it just the limit for one instance of a shell process ? What we want is something like a bank account form which you may withdraw cpu-time and memory-hours.
