It's simpler in practice than reading about it (although I am using v1 cgroups, I think v2 just has a bit different layout or something) - look in /sys/fs/cgroups, there are directories with files that set limits, and files that can contain the pid number of processes. Subdirs are limited by the parent limits plus the limits defined in their own files. The manager programs change the values in the files and create the directories (you can even do this manually if you know what to do.) So if you configure a manager to set up a 50% CPU directory and put a process in it then it uses 50% of one core until you take it out again. You can limit other resources likewise.

I use libcgroup-openrc-git. It's a fully working package but I didn't know what I could do with it other than use it myself, as it's an openrc Artix package so might not be suitable for the AUR, especially as I don't have a straight Arch install to test it with, and Artix package guidelines say no git packages.
The patch came from their mailing list, they were very helpful. AFAIK (which may not be that far :D ) it's the best most full featured cgroup manager, and it's not had a release for a few years as cgroup management functionality has been added to systemd leaving other methods as a low priority I suppose. But a lot of useful commits have been added since the last release, so the git version should be better.
Had you also noticed ionice has been broken due to kernel changes? This also breaks btrfs scrub niceness. The recommendation is to use cgroups instead.
Here's the PKGBUILD and associated files (it provides / conflicts with the  libcgroup AUR pkg so it won't cause a problem if you had that installed before):

Hi! maybe offtopic but: where i can find the source?

duh now I see. You override right?
