Found the release over here on GitHub, installed, limited Lightroom Classic to 1600%, saw its CPU usage drop from 2200% to 1473% immediately. Have my computer back to work on while Lightroom imports 150,000 photos. I could see this as very useful for DaVinci Resolve renders as well. So simple to use. Brilliant. PS. Normally I don't use Lightroom, prefer FastRawViewer and DxO PhotoLab but need a catalogue of everything to merge some hard drives.

Excellent. Was able to precisely control CPU usage of the over-enthusiastic apps. AppPolice is small, sits in the background minding it's own business until needed and does it's job perfectly.

Discontinued or not, here you'll find a build from 2016: https://github.com/fuyu/AppPolice/releases that runs in macOS 10.12 Sierra. I haven't tested its renicing powers as of yet.

This is a fantastic little app. I've just started re-encoding my video library in x265 using Handbrake, which is a massive resource-hog and eats every scrap of CPU I can feed it. Restricting Handbrake to 400% CPU down from its preferred 800% frees up enough resources to browse the web, check email, stream via Plex...stuff I do every day...while Handbrake does its thing in the background. AppPolice also stops my fans from going into overdrive by winding back CPU usage to manageable levels...lovely jubbly.

This excellent FREE application is a must-have for heavy-load and long-time processes (e.g. encoding or exporting) that controls the CPU threads and allows me to set a level that doesn't make the CPU overheat (try keeping up to 70°C). It's been updated to version 1.1. just recently, MacUpdate staff please refresh the info if possible. No obvious changes or anything reported over GitHub. Still remains a must-have tool.

It's a really great app, considering it is free. On OS X 10.7.5 though, if the app police app is not closed after the app it is limiting, it somehow causes a reboot of the OS. :/ Hopefully the dev will iron out the bugs before the next release :D Clicking on update within the app, the button just disappears and the about me just sits there! I get it, the update server isin't configured to respond yet, would be great if it did though ;)

Works really well. It's a free app, but the developer was very helpful when I thought it wasn't working correctly. Turns out the application I was trying to throttle spawned a subprocess which was doing all of the work. At this price, you can't go wrong!

Wow, absolute genius. I used apps like App Tamer, but the "all or nothing" solution wasn't want I wanted. Being able to dial down an app, but keep it running, makes so much sense.
