Build Status

Class cgroups

Description

The cgroups class is used to configure the cgroup service and its main configuration details.

Parameters


cgconfig_content (string)

Optional, specify arbitary content for the cgconfig.conf file that will be included at the bottom.

  • Default: undef

config_file_path (string)

Absolute path to cgroups config file.

  • Default: '/etc/cgconfig.conf'

groups (hash)

A hash containing group resources to be configured (see below for cgroups::group resources)

  • Default: undef
Example:
cgroups::groups:
  "user/mgw-all":
    permissions:
      task:
        uid: root
        gid: mgw-all
      admin:
        uid: root
        gid: mgw-all
    controllers:
      cpuset:
        "cpuset.mems": "0"
        "cpuset.cpus": "0,1"
Hiera example with Suse 11.2 bugfix:
cgroups::user_path_fix: '/sys/fs/cgroup/user/mgw-all'
cgroups::groups:
  "user/mgw-all":
    permissions:
      task:
        uid: root
        gid: mgw-all
      admin:
        uid: root
        gid: mgw-all
    controllers:
      cpuset:
        "cpuset.mems": "0"
        "cpuset.cpus": "0,1"

mounts (hash)

A hash containing mounts to be configured in /etc/cgconfig.conf. NOTE: On systemd managed systems, the default resource controllers are the domain of systemd, therefore this setting should probably not be used unless you are managing a controller not yet supported by systemd such as net_prio.

  • Default: undef
Example:
cgroups::mounts:
  cpu: '/cgroup'

package_name (string or array)

Name of package(s) that enables cgroups. Only set it to overwrite the modules defaults: RedHat 'libcgroup', Suse 'libcgroup1'.

  • Default: undef

service_name (string)

Name of service to manage.

  • Default: 'cgconfig'

user_path_fix (string)

Absolute path to set 0775 permissions on when defined. This is a fix for Suse that have a bug in setting this though the config file. Only available on Suse.

  • Default: undef

Defined type cgroups::group

Description

The cgroups::group definition is used to configure cgroup entries in /etc/cgconfig.d.

You can also specify cgroups::groups from hiera as a hash of group resources and they will be created by the base class using create_resources.

Parameters


controllers (hash)

An optional hash containing the controllers for the group.

  • Default: undef
Example:
  controllers => {
    'cpuset' => { 
      'cpuset.mems' => '0',
      'cpuset.cpus' => '0,1'
    }
  }

permissions (hash)

An optional hash containing permissions for the group.

  • Default: undef
Example:
  permissions => {
    'task' => {
      'uid' => 'root',
      'gid' => 'mgw-all',
    },
    'admin' => {
      'uid' => 'root',
      'gid' => 'mgw-all',
    },
  }

target_path (string)

Optional parameter to define in which path the configuration file should be put. By default the module will use the /etc/cgconfig.d directory.

  • Default: '/etc/cgconfig.d'
