comment Set default nice value for a given user (limits.conf)
Ok, thanks a lot for this disambiguation. BTW, I haven't tried the other methods (involving and or cgroup) which might be better in other situations than mine (need of a continuous check, or management of many users -which is a bit too much in my case).

First of all, thanks for your answer ( thank you as well, @mattdm ). It seems this method works. However, I'm still confused about the difference between "nice" and "priority" : both are displayed by "top" but the value quoted for nice is the one I have to set for priority. It looks a bit strange to me. Also, does a bigger priority (say 39 instead of 20) mean a less important process as it does for nice? Thank you.
