Hi I've added the following directives to my openVPN client configuration file in order to maximise the VPN throughput on my Ubuntu 16.04 based VPN router/gateway. fast-io nice -20 Starting my VPN with sudo service openvpn restart, initiates the VPN correctly, but the "nice" directive isn't applied. Relavent lines of log are below. Feb 14 12:30:09 srvbuntu ovpn-airvpn: nice = -20 ... Feb 14 12:30:09 srvbuntu ovpn-airvpn: fast_io = ENABLED ... Feb 14 12:30:09 srvbuntu ovpn-airvpn: WARNING: nice -20 failed: Operation not permitted: Operation not permitted (errno=1) If I start the VPN from the CLI using "sudo openvpn airvpn.conf" the "nice" directive is implemented: Tue Feb 14 12:37:25 2017 us=588423 nice -20 succeeded What is preventing the nice directive from being followed when I start it as a service?
