Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In Linux we can limit user processes by editing /etc/security/limits.conf file. Is there any equivalent file in Android for the same purpose.

Not really an Android developer, but apparently Android supports cgroups(also). On regular servers, cgroups are intended to replace several different subsystems (the limits subsys being one) so it's probably (just going off my GNU/Linux admin experience) preferred to use cgroups to do what you're wanting (going forward that's probably a good recommendation on the server-side as well).
