Resource Management BoFS

Srivatsa Vaddagiri (vatsa@in.ibm.com)

There is demand for a long time now to have better and more flexible resource management capabilities in the kernel. This includes the ability to manage resource (cpu, memory, io bandwidth etc) consumption of a group of tasks (tasks of a user, tasks in a container etc). A driving goal behind this effort is to better isolate performance of different applications, such that one wild-running application doesn't negatively affect the performance of another. This can also lead to providing better quality of service for applications.

There are several out-of-tree solutions for this (ex: OpenVZ, Linux-VServer, CKRM to name a few). An acceptable solution for Linux kernel will likely include best approaches from these different solutions. The intention of the BoF is to get together interested parties and discuss potential solutions going forward for framework and individual controllers (cpu, memory etc).

Hosts : Srivatsa Vaddagiri (IBM), Balbir Singh (IBM) and Kirill Korotaev (OpenVZ)
