    What is the use case for this? What is the normal limit? And under what circumstances would you change it, and to what value? Under what circumstances would you restore it to its original value?

    Hi, and sorry for the delay.

    What is the use case for this?
    It just was a request from a user, but I thought in using it in a project that serves to test apps internaly too (debugging). (didn't start working on it yet)
    What is the normal limit?
    I think it changes from device to device. But not sure. But the default is higher than the options offered in such option. (8, 10, 15, or more)
    Under what circumstances would you change it, and to what value?
    This action, as the others located under Developer Options, is just intended to debug something if you are a developer (OS or apps).
    But, if you will just use it as a normal user, it will allow the device to free up a little RAM. As it won't handle more than n number of background processes at a time, killing them immediately after closing the app activity or in case of its services are not launched again. Also, the device will go, again, a little smoother.
    You decide the number of processes to keep running.
    Under what circumstances would you restore it to its original value?
    It is restored to defaults every time the device is rebooted. So, always. That's why the task helps you to automate it, to avoid going to dev options repeatedly.
