Configurable Cgroup Path

Function Description

System containers provide the capabilities of isolating and reserving container resources on hosts. You can use the –cgroup-parent parameter to specify the cgroup directory used by a container to another directory, thereby flexibly allocating host resources. For example, if the cgroup parent path of containers A, B, and C is set to /lxc/cgroup1, and the cgroup parent path of containers D, E, and F is set to /lxc/cgroup2, the containers are divided into two groups through the cgroup paths, implementing resource isolation at the cgroup level.

Parameter Description

Command

Parameter

Value Description

isula create/run

--cgroup-parent

  • Variable of the string type.
  • Specifies the cgroup parent path of the container.

In addition to specifying the cgroup parent path for a system container using commands, you can also specify the cgroup paths of all containers by modifying the startup configuration files of the iSulad container engine.

Configuration File Path

Parameter

Description

/etc/isulad/daemon.json

--cgroup-parent

  • Variable of the string type.
  • Specifies the default cgroup parent path of the container.
  • Example: "cgroup-parent": "/lxc/mycgroup"

Constraints

  • If the cgroup parent parameter is set on both the daemon and client, the value specified on the client takes effect.
  • If container A is started before container B, the cgroup parent path of container B is specified as the cgroup path of container A. When deleting a container, you need to delete container B and then container A. Otherwise, residual cgroup resources exist.

Example

Start a system container and specify the –cgroup-parent parameter.

[root@localhost ~]# isula run -tid --cgroup-parent /lxc/cgroup123 --system-container --external-rootfs /root/myrootfs none init
115878a4dfc7c5b8c62ef8a4b44f216485422be9a28f447a4b9ecac4609f332e

Check the cgroup information of the init process in the container.

[root@localhost ~]# isula inspect -f "{{json .State.Pid}}" 11

The cgroup parent path of the container is set to /sys/fs/cgroup/<controller>/lxc/cgroup123.

In addition, you can configure the container daemon file to set the cgroup parent paths for all containers. For example:

{
         "cgroup-parent": "/lxc/cgroup123",
}

Restart the container engine for the configuration to take effect.
