comment How to bzip a file with minimum cpu percentage?
To clarify what EEAA is saying: there's nothing wrong with it using 100% CPU. That's what you want because it's the fastest. It will always use 100% CPU when there's nothing else for the processor to do. When the processor has other things to work on, then it will balance out the tasks and share the CPU. By setting the nice value, you are telling the kernel that bzip is not as important as your other processes, so it should give the other processes CPU time before giving it to bzip. Don't worry too much about the percentages.
