Pausing/Suspending a running process

I had a couple of analysis jobs running they appeared to be stepping all over each other, with both jobs trashing a lot. I wanted to suspend one of the jobs to allow the other to continue in peace. You can do this using kill:

kill -STOP processid

and to continue it later:

kill -CONT processid
