    The article states: “It is highly recommended that you use these tools with root user privileges”. The manual does not recommend this:

    Running stress-ng with root privileges will adjust out of memory set‐
    tings on Linux systems to make the stressors unkillable in low memory
    situations, so use this judiciously. With the appropriate privilege,
    stress-ng can allow the ionice class and ionice levels to be adjusted,
    again, this should be used with care.
