cgutil configs

This command show you configurations of cgroups. By default, it shows only changed configurations.

Example output

$ cgutil configs -o memory
<root>
    notify_on_release=1
    release_agent=/usr/lib/ulatencyd/ulatencyd_cleanup.lua
sys_essential
    swappiness=0
    notify_on_release=1
sys_bg
    swappiness=100
    notify_on_release=1

cgutil event

This command makes cgroup.event_control easy to use. It exits when a state of a target cgroup crosses a threshold which you set, thus, you can know the state of the cgroup has changed.

Example output

$ cgutil event /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/system/sshd.service/memory.usage_in_bytes +1M
$ # It exits when memory usage of processes in the cgroup has increased one more MB.

cgutil pgrep

This command is alike pgrep command but it shows cgroups in addtion to PIDs.

Example output

$ cgutil pgrep ssh
/: 15072
/: 15074
/system/sshd.service: 630
$ cgutil pgrep ssh -l -f
/: 15072 sshd: ozaki-r [priv]
/: 15074 sshd: ozaki-r@pts/2
/: 15157 /bin/python /bin/cgutil pgrep ssh -l -f
/system/sshd.service: 630 /usr/sbin/sshd -D

cgutil stats

This command shows you states of cgroups.

Example output

$ cgutil stats
<root>
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
system
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
system/sm-client.service
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
system/sendmail.service
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
system/vboxadd-service.service
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
system/colord.service
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
system/colord-sane.service
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
system/udisks2.service
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
system/cups.service
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}

cgutil top

This command is alike top command but it shows activities in a unit of cgroups.

Example output

$ cgutil top -i -n 2 -b

cgutil tree

This command shows you tree structure of cgroups.

Example outputs

$ cgutil tree -o blkio
<root>
   `system
       +sm-client.service
       +sendmail.service
       +vboxadd-service.service
       +colord.service
       +colord-sane.service
       +udisks2.service
       +cups.service
       +rtkit-daemon.service
