Resource Management BoFSSrivatsa Vaddagiri (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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.
