I've been wracking my brain, but for the life of me can't recall the exact
program name, but back when I managed a HPCC, there was a tool that would
let you restrict a running process to X number of CPUs/Cores natively.  I
keep thinking it was MPC, but nothing googles on that.  Regardless, that
might be a better way of running Sybase, as a container may not be beefy
enough to  handle the load Sybase is likely to generate.
