Even 100% processor time is not definitely a problem (consider HT and/or
SMP). Busy is defined by some quite hard to quanitify PC metrics such as
memory bandwidths. nice() will ask the kernel to do the right things for
CPU although Linux (and afaik all other Unixen) don't currently have any
kind of "disknice" functionality.
