Cgroups - File /proc/cgroups

This parser reads the content of /proc/cgroups. This file shows the control groups information of system.

Sample /proc/cgroups file:

#subsys_name        hierarchy       num_cgroups     enabled
cpuset      10      48      1
cpu 2       232     1
cpuacct     2       232     1
memory      5       232     1
devices     6       232     1
freezer     3       48      1
net_cls     4       48      1
blkio       9       232     1
perf_event  8       48      1
hugetlb     11      48      1
pids        7       232     1
net_prio    4       48      1

Examples

>>> i_cgroups.get_num_cgroups("memory")
232
>>> i_cgroups.is_subsys_enabled("memory")
True
>>> i_cgroups.data[0].get('hierarchy')
'10'
>>> i_cgroups.subsystems["memory"]["enabled"]
'1'

Bases: Parser

Class Cgroups parses the content of the /proc/cgroups.

data

A list of the subsystem cgroup information

Type

list

subsystems

A dict of all subsystems, key is subsystem name and value is dict with keys: hierarchy, num_cgroups, enabled

Type

dict

get_num_cgroups(i_subsys_name)[source]

Get value of cgroup number for specified subsystem, raise exception if keyword not found.

Example

>>> i_cgroups.get_num_cgroups("memory")
232
>>> i_cgroups.get_num_cgroups('hugetlb')
48
Parameters

i_subsys_name (str) -- specified subsystem name.

Returns

Int value of the specified subsystem cgroups

Return type

value (int)

Raises

KeyError -- Exception is raised if given subsystem name is wrong

is_subsys_enabled(i_subsys_name)[source]

Get enable or not of cgroup of specified subsystem, raise exception if keyword not found.

Example

>>> i_cgroups.is_subsys_enabled("memory")
True
>>> i_cgroups.is_subsys_enabled('hugetlb')
True
Parameters

i_subsys_name (str) -- specified subsystem name.

Returns

Return True if the cgroup of specified subsystem is enabled, else return False

Return type

value (boolean)

Raises

KeyError -- Exception is raised if given subsystem name is wrong
