Are there any highest memory usage and CPU usage values we need to keep to prevent the system from slowing down? (Ex: when the memory usage goes above 80% the system starts to slow down)

Hello! I am developing a application for windows 10 devices as a part of my undergraduate project. The application is a resource-hungry one which communicates smartphones and run machine learning models within the application. Since this is a resource-hungry application I want to make sure that this one does not affetct user's other activities. So I am looking for a threshold/ ballpark number so that I can limit the application processes if the current memory usage/cpu usage reaches the threshold/ ballpark number.

    Firstly, it is a developed application. As you know, this application takes up a lot of resources. So I consider it would be most effective to optimize this program.
    Usually for performance problems, we use tools to grab and analyze what's causing it. For your issue, it's your developed application. How to limit the memory/cpu usage for a particular program,I consider that you could set the priority usage of the program or some tools may help you. Please refer to the information in the link below:
    Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
    Best Regards,
