-5.2.2 memory.vmscan_stat
-
-memory.vmscan_stat includes statistics information for memory scanning and
-freeing, reclaiming. The statistics shows memory scanning information since
-memory cgroup creation and can be reset to 0 by writing 0 as
-
- #echo 0 > ../memory.vmscan_stat
-
-This file contains following statistics.
-
-[param]_[file_or_anon]_pages_by_[reason]_[under_heararchy]
-[param]_elapsed_ns_by_[reason]_[under_hierarchy]
-
-For example,
-
- scanned_file_pages_by_limit indicates the number of scanned
- file pages at vmscan.
-
-Now, 3 parameters are supported
-
- scanned - the number of pages scanned by vmscan
- rotated - the number of pages activated at vmscan
- freed - the number of pages freed by vmscan
-
-If "rotated" is high against scanned/freed, the memcg seems busy.
-
-Now, 2 reason are supported
-
- limit - the memory cgroup's limit
- system - global memory pressure + softlimit
- (global memory pressure not under softlimit is not handled now)
-
-When under_hierarchy is added in the tail, the number indicates the
-total memcg scan of its children and itself.
-
-elapsed_ns is a elapsed time in nanosecond. This may include sleep time
-and not indicates CPU usage. So, please take this as just showing
-latency.
-
-Here is an example.
