If you're running Unix, just run the deschall clients at nice 19 and
leave it at that. Let the Unix scheduler get the process out of the
way, no need to do anything peculiar yourself. Really.

Presumably this advice also applies for Windows "idle" priority. But I
don't know enough about Windows scheduling to really trust it.
