niceload does have not documented the '-l' flag. I assume it called --limit with an number argument.

Also it is possible that --sensor argument not working properly with -s flag (it is suppose to suspend target process for -s seconds, but it wont). Here are few examples which are not working.

niceload -l -5000 --sensor 'xprintidle' "bash -c 'while true; do echo -n; done'"

niceload -l -5000 -s 1 --sensor 'xprintidle' "bash -c 'while true; do echo -n; done'"

Now working example:

niceload -l -5000 -f 0.001 --sensor 'xprintidle' "bash -c 'while true; do echo -n; done'"

Not working example

niceload -l -5000 -f 0.0001 --sensor 'xprintidle' "bash -c 'while true; do echo -n; done'"
