NAME         top

       sandbox.conf - user config file for the SELinux sandbox

DESCRIPTION         top

       When running sandbox with the -C argument, it will be confined using
       control groups and a system administrator can specify how the sandbox
       is confined.

       Everything after "#" is ignored, as are empty lines.  All arguments
       should be separated by and equals sign ("=").

       These keywords are allowed.

              NAME   The name of the sandbox control group.  Default is

                     Which cpus to assign sandbox to.  The default is ALL,
                     but users can specify a comma-separated list with
                     dashes ("-") to represent ranges.  Ex: 0-2,5

                     How much memory to allow sandbox to use.  The default
                     is 80%.  Users can specify either a percentage or a
                     value in the form of a number followed by one of the
                     suffixes K, M, G to denote kilobytes, megabytes or
                     gigabytes respectively.  Ex: 50% or 100M

                     Percentage of cpu sandbox should be allowed to use.
                     The default is 80%.  Specify a value followed by a
                     percent sign ("%"). Ex: 50%
