2008-03-04cgroup: fix default notify_on_release settingLi Zefan1-1/+3
The documentation says the default value of notify_on_release of a child cgroup is inherited from its parent, which is reasonable, but the implementation just sets the flag disabled.

2008-02-07Handle pid namespaces in cgroups codePavel Emelyanov1-2/+2
There's one place that works with task pids - its the "tasks" file in cgroups. The read/write handlers assume, that the pid values go to/come from the user space and thus it is a virtual pid, i.e. the pid as it is seen from inside a namespace. Tune the code accordingly.

2008-02-07hotplug cpu: move tasks in empty cpusets to parentCliff Wickman1-11/+11
This patch corrects a situation that occurs when one disables all the cpus in a cpuset. Currently, the disabled (cpu-less) cpuset inherits the cpus of its parent, which is incorrect because it may then overlap its cpu-exclusive sibling. Tasks of an empty cpuset should be moved to the cpuset which is the parent of their current cpuset. Or if the parent cpuset has no cpus, to its parent, etc. And the empty cpuset should be released (if it is flagged notify_on_release). Depends on the cgroup_scan_tasks() function (proposed by David Rientjes) to iterate through all tasks in the cpu-less cpuset. We are deliberately avoiding a walk of the tasklist.

2008-02-07cgroups: mechanism to process each task in a cgroupCliff Wickman1-12/+186
Provide cgroup_scan_tasks(), which iterates through every task in a cgroup, calling a test function and a process function for each. And call the process function without holding the css_set_lock lock. The idea is David Rientjes', predicting that such a function will make it much easier in the future to extend things that require access to each task in a cgroup without holding the lock, [akpm@linux-foundation.org: cleanup] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style fixes] Signed-off-by: Cliff Wickman <cpw@sgi.com> Cc: Paul Menage <menage@google.com> Cc: Paul Jackson <pj@sgi.com> Acked-by: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2008-02-07memory cgroup enhancements: add- pre_destroy() handlerKAMEZAWA Hiroyuki1-0/+22
Add a handler "pre_destroy" to cgroup_subsys. It is called before cgroup_rmdir() checks all subsys's refcnt. I think this is useful for subsys which have some extra refs even if there are no tasks in cgroup. By adding pre_destroy(), the kernel keeps the rule "destroy() against subsystem is called only when refcnt=0." and allows css ref to be used by other objects than tasks.

2008-02-07cgroups: move cgroups destroy() callbacks to cgroup_diput()Paul Menage1-12/+24
Move the calls to the cgroup subsystem destroy() methods from cgroup_rmdir() to cgroup_diput(). This allows control file reads and writes to access their subsystem state without having to be concerned with locking against cgroup destruction - the control file dentry will keep the cgroup and its subsystem state objects alive until the file is closed. The documentation is updated to reflect the changed semantics of destroy(); additionally the locking comments for destroy() and some other methods were clarified and decrustified.

Replace "cont" with "cgrp" and other misc renaming This patch finishes some of the names that got missed in the great "task containers" -> "control groups" rename. Primarily it renames the local variable "cont" to "cgrp" in a number of places, and renames the CONT_* enum members to CGRP_*.

2007-10-19Add cgroupstatsBalbir Singh1-0/+55
This patch is inspired by the discussion at http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/4/11/187 and implements per cgroup statistics as suggested by Andrew Morton in http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/4/11/263. The patch is on top of 2.6.21-mm1 with Paul's cgroups v9 patches (forward ported) This patch implements per cgroup statistics infrastructure and re-uses code from the taskstats interface. A new set of cgroup operations are registered with commands and attributes. It should be very easy to *extend* per cgroup statistics, by adding members to the cgroupstats structure. The current model for cgroupstats is a pull, a push model (to post statistics on interesting events), should be very easy to add. Currently user space requests for statistics by passing the cgroup file descriptor. Statistics about the state of all the tasks in the cgroup is returned to user space. TODO's/NOTE: This patch provides an infrastructure for implementing cgroup statistics. Based on the needs of each controller, we can incrementally add more statistics, event based support for notification of statistics, accumulation of taskstats into cgroup statistics in the future. Sample output # ./cgroupstats -C /cgroup/a sleeping 2, blocked 0, running 1, stopped 0, uninterruptible 0 # ./cgroupstats -C /cgroup/ sleeping 154, blocked 0, running 0, stopped 0, uninterruptible 0 If the approach looks good, I'll enhance and post the user space utility for the same Feedback, comments, test results are always welcome!

2007-10-19Task Control Groups: automatic userspace notification of idle cgroupsPaul Menage1-42/+386
Add the following files to the cgroup filesystem: notify_on_release - configures/reports whether the cgroup subsystem should attempt to run a release script when this cgroup becomes unused release_agent - configures/reports the release agent to be used for this hierarchy (top level in each hierarchy only) releasable - reports whether this cgroup would have been auto-released if notify_on_release was true and a release agent was configured (mainly useful for debugging) To avoid locking issues, invoking the userspace release agent is done via a workqueue task; cgroups that need to have their release agents invoked by the workqueue task are linked on to a list.

2007-10-19Task Control Groups: shared cgroup subsystem group arraysPaul Menage1-114/+535
Replace the struct css_set embedded in task_struct with a pointer; all tasks that have the same set of memberships across all hierarchies will share a css_set object, and will be linked via their css_sets field to the "tasks" list_head in the css_set. Assuming that many tasks share the same cgroup assignments, this reduces overall space usage and keeps the size of the task_struct down (three pointers added to task_struct compared to a non-cgroups kernel, no matter how many subsystems are registered).

2007-10-19Task Control Groups: basic task cgroup frameworkPaul Menage1-0/+1198
Generic Process Control Groups -------------------------- There have recently been various proposals floating around for resource management/accounting and other task grouping subsystems in the kernel, including ResGroups, User BeanCounters, NSProxy cgroups, and others. These all need the basic abstraction of being able to group together multiple processes in an aggregate, in order to track/limit the resources permitted to those processes, or control other behaviour of the processes, and all implement this grouping in different ways. This patchset provides a framework for tracking and grouping processes into arbitrary "cgroups" and assigning arbitrary state to those groupings, in order to control the behaviour of the cgroup as an aggregate. The intention is that the various resource management and virtualization/cgroup efforts can also become task cgroup clients, with the result that: - the userspace APIs are (somewhat) normalised - it's easier to test e.g. the ResGroups CPU controller in conjunction with the BeanCounters memory controller, or use either of them as the resource-control portion of a virtual server system. - the additional kernel footprint of any of the competing resource management systems is substantially reduced, since it doesn't need to provide process grouping/containment, hence improving their chances of getting into the kernel This patch: Add the main task cgroups framework - the cgroup filesystem, and the basic structures for tracking membership and associating subsystem state objects to tasks.
