Subject [jira] [Created] (UIMA-2804) Add CGroup support
Date Tue, 09 Apr 2013 14:16:16 GMT
Jerry Cwiklik created UIMA-2804:

             Summary: Add CGroup support
                 Key: UIMA-2804
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2804
             Project: UIMA
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: DUCC
            Reporter: Jerry Cwiklik
            Assignee: Jerry Cwiklik

Modify ducc to use Linux cgroups. Currently, only cgroup memory subsystem will be used to
limit amount of memory a process is allowed to use. Cgroups provide a light weight virtual
machine for processes.

An agent will launch processes in a cgroup container. The agent on start up should check a
global flag in ducc.properties to enable/disable use of cgroups. Also, the agent should check
if cgroups are properly installed on a node by checking for existence of /cgroup/ducc folder.
The final check is against an exclusion file which may facilitate disabling cgroups on per
machine basis. 

If cgroups are enabled, the agent will launch processes in a cgroup container. For JPs and
APs, the first process assigned to the container will be the primary/owner of the container.
The agent should support injecting other/secondary processes into an existing container. If
the JP primary process terminates, the agent will proceed to kill secondary processes and
finally remove the container. If the AP primary process terminates, the agent will kill secondary
processes but will not remove the container. Same will be true for JDs. In both of these cases,
the container is associated with a reservation and thus the container should remain for as
long the reservation is open.  

The agent will also max use of swap space by each container. The container threshold will
be computed by ducc based on assigned number of shares assigned to the container. For example,
if the container is assigned 1 15GB share on machine with 45GB total memory, ducc will constrain
the container to 1/3 of total (minus 1GB) swap space.
