sem --jobs 3 --id my_id -u 'echo First started; sleep 5; echo The first finished' &&
sem --jobs 3 --id my_id -u 'echo Second started; sleep 6; echo The second finished' &&
sem --jobs 3 --id my_id -u 'echo Third started; sleep 7; echo The third finished' &&
sem --jobs 3 --id my_id -u 'echo Fourth started; sleep 8; echo The fourth finished' &&
sem --wait --id my_id

parallel: Warning: Cannot spawn any jobs. Raising ulimit -u or /etc/security/limits.conf may help.
