Since the VPS limit the usage for the cpu, I have to limit the usage of miner when I setup the miner on ubuntu server, I installed cpulimit but it looks like not easy to use:
cpulimit -P /mycoin/src/myminer -l 25
I try to run this on ubuntu but it looks like it will not run background, any way to let this run on background?
also, I must run myminer first, and then run cpulimit command, is this any way I can just limit my cpu usuage first and then the miner later?
because if I run miner first, it will take lot of the cpu usage immediately

Popping an ampersand at the end should let it run in the background.  Give it some niceness too if you're concerned about it slowing down other processes:
Code:
nice -n 19 cpulimit -P /mycoin/src/myminer -l 25 &

If your cpu mining then im going to assume your mining with the daemon of the coin itself. In that case

Code:
proc=x

Where x = the number of cores you want utilized. Adding that line to your config file will do the trick for most codebases
