Did you already check the old and tried method of nice(2)?

If the other load is CPU-intensive, this is usually sufficient.

Normally you’d nice the CPU-intensive load (so anything else on
the system is not affected), but you can also negative-nice the
sshd processes (and therefore, the children) which however may
not be sufficient and could require to negative-nice some other
processes or kernel tasks as well, so see if your scenario can
just positive-nice the load instead.
