2012-12-18res_counter: return amount of charges after res_counter_uncharge()Glauber Costa1-3/+4
It is useful to know how many charges are still left after a call to res_counter_uncharge. While it is possible to issue a res_counter_read after uncharge, this can be racy. If we need, for instance, to take some action when the counters drop down to 0, only one of the callers should see it. This is the same semantics as the atomic variables in the kernel. Since the current return value is void, we don't need to worry about anything breaking due to this change: nobody relied on that, and only users appearing from now on will be checking this value.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup Pull cgroup changes from Tejun Heo: "A lot of activities on cgroup side. The big changes are focused on making cgroup hierarchy handling saner. - cgroup_rmdir() had peculiar semantics - it allowed cgroup destruction to be vetoed by individual controllers and tried to drain refcnt synchronously. The vetoing never worked properly and caused good deal of contortions in cgroup. memcg was the last reamining user. Michal Hocko removed the usage and cgroup_rmdir() path has been simplified significantly. This was done in a separate branch so that the memcg people can base further memcg changes on top. - The above allowed cleaning up cgroup lifecycle management and implementation of generic cgroup iterators which are used to improve hierarchy support. - cgroup_freezer updated to allow migration in and out of a frozen cgroup and handle hierarchy. If a cgroup is frozen, all descendant cgroups are frozen. - netcls_cgroup and netprio_cgroup updated to handle hierarchy properly. - Various fixes and cleanups. - Two merge commits. One to pull in memcg and rmdir cleanups (needed to build iterators). The other pulled in cgroup/for-3.7-fixes for device_cgroup fixes so that further device_cgroup patches can be stacked on top."

Inherit netprio configuration from ->css_online(), allow nesting and remove .broken_hierarchy marking. This makes netprio_cgroup's behavior match netcls_cgroup's. Note that this patch changes userland-visible behavior. Nesting is allowed and the first level cgroups below the root cgroup behave differently - they inherit priorities from the root cgroup on creation instead of starting with 0.

Currently CGRP_CPUSET_CLONE_CHILDREN triggers ->post_clone(). Now that clone_children is cpuset specific, there's no reason to have this rather odd option activation mechanism in cgroup core. cpuset can check the flag from its ->css_allocate() and take the necessary action. Move cpuset_post_clone() logic to the end of cpuset_css_alloc() and remove cgroup_subsys->post_clone(). Loosely based on Glauber's "generalize post_clone into post_create" patch.

2012-11-16memcg: oom: fix totalpages calculation for memory.swappiness==0Michal Hocko1-0/+4
oom_badness() takes a totalpages argument which says how many pages are available and it uses it as a base for the score calculation. The value is calculated by mem_cgroup_get_limit which considers both limit and total_swap_pages (resp. memsw portion of it). This is usually correct but since fe35004fbf9e ("mm: avoid swapping out with swappiness==0") we do not swap when swappiness is 0 which means that we cannot really use up all the totalpages pages. This in turn confuses oom score calculation if the memcg limit is much smaller than the available swap because the used memory (capped by the limit) is negligible comparing to totalpages so the resulting score is too small if adj!=0 (typically task with CAP_SYS_ADMIN or non zero oom_score_adj). A wrong process might be selected as result. The problem can be worked around by checking mem_cgroup_swappiness==0 and not considering swap at all in such a case.

2012-11-09cgroup_freezer: implement proper hierarchy supportTejun Heo1-21/+42
Up until now, cgroup_freezer didn't implement hierarchy properly. cgroups could be arranged in hierarchy but it didn't make any difference in how each cgroup_freezer behaved. They all operated separately. This patch implements proper hierarchy support. If a cgroup is frozen, all its descendants are frozen. A cgroup is thawed iff it and all its ancestors are THAWED. freezer.self_freezing shows the current freezing state for the cgroup itself. freezer.parent_freezing shows whether the cgroup is freezing because any of its ancestors is freezing. freezer_post_create() locks the parent and new cgroup and inherits the parent's state and freezer_change_state() applies new state top-down using cgroup_for_each_descendant_pre() which guarantees that no child can escape its parent's state. update_if_frozen() uses cgroup_for_each_descendant_post() to propagate frozen states bottom-up. Synchronization could be coarser and easier by using a single mutex to protect all hierarchy operations. Finer grained approach was used because it wasn't too difficult for cgroup_freezer and I think it's beneficial to have an example implementation and cgroup_freezer is rather simple and can serve a good one. As this makes cgroup_freezer properly hierarchical, freezer_subsys.broken_hierarchy marking is removed. Note that this patch changes userland visible behavior - freezing a cgroup now freezes all its descendants too. This behavior change is intended and has been warned via .broken_hierarchy. v2: Michal spotted a bug in freezer_change_state() - descendants were inheriting from the wrong ancestor. Fixed. v3: Documentation/cgroups/freezer-subsystem.txt updated. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Reviewed-by: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.cz>

2012-05-29memcg: move charges to root cgroup if use_hierarchy=0KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki1-5/+8
Presently, at removal of cgroup, ->pre_destroy() is called and moves charges to the parent cgroup. A major reason for returning -EBUSY from ->pre_destroy() is that the 'moving' hits the parent's resource limitation. It happens only when use_hierarchy=0. Considering use_hierarchy=0, all cgroups should be flat. So, no one cannot justify moving charges to parent...parent and children are in flat configuration, not hierarchical. This patch modifes the code to move charges to the root cgroup at rmdir/force_empty if use_hierarchy==0. This will much simplify rmdir() and reduce error in ->pre_destroy.

2012-05-29memcg: fix/change behavior of shared anon at moving taskKAMEZAWA Hiroyuki1-5/+4
This patch changes memcg's behavior at task_move(). At task_move(), the kernel scans a task's page table and move the changes for mapped pages from source cgroup to target cgroup. There has been a bug at handling shared anonymous pages for a long time. Before patch: - The spec says 'shared anonymous pages are not moved.' - The implementation was 'shared anonymoys pages may be moved'. If page_mapcount <=2, shared anonymous pages's charge were moved. After patch: - The spec says 'all anonymous pages are moved'. - The implementation is 'all anonymous pages are moved'. Considering usage of memcg, this will not affect user's experience. 'shared anonymous' pages only exists between a tree of processes which don't do exec(). Moving one of process without exec() seems not sane. For example, libcgroup will not be affected by this change. (Anyway, no one noticed the implementation for a long time...) Below is a discussion log: - current spec/implementation are complex - Now, shared file caches are moved - It adds unclear check as page_mapcount(). To do correct check, we should check swap users, etc. - No one notice this implementation behavior. So, no one get benefit from the design. - In general, once task is moved to a cgroup for running, it will not be moved.... - Finally, we have control knob as memory.move_charge_at_immigrate. Here is a patch to allow moving shared pages, completely. This makes memcg simpler and fix current broken code.

2012-02-02cgroup: remove cgroup_subsys argument from callbacksLi Zefan1-15/+11
The argument is not used at all, and it's not necessary, because a specific callback handler of course knows which subsys it belongs to. Now only ->pupulate() takes this argument, because the handlers of this callback always call cgroup_add_file()/cgroup_add_files(). So we reduce a few lines of code, though the shrinking of object size is minimal. 16 files changed, 113 insertions(+), 162 deletions(-) text data bss dec hex filename 5486240 656987 7039960 13183187 c928d3 vmlinux.o.orig 5486170 656987 7039960 13183117 c9288d vmlinux.o Signed-off-by: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

2011-12-22Partial revert "Basic kernel memory functionality for the Memory Controller"Glauber Costa1-20/+2
This reverts commit e5671dfae59b165e2adfd4dfbdeab11ac8db5bda. After a follow up discussion with Michal, it was agreed it would be better to leave the kmem controller with just the tcp files, deferring the behavior of the other general memory.kmem.* files for a later time, when more caches are controlled. This is because generic kmem files are not used by tcp accounting and it is not clear how other slab caches would fit into the scheme. We are reverting the original commit so we can track the reference. Part of the patch is kept, because it was used by the later tcp code. Conflicts are shown in the bottom. init/Kconfig is removed from the revert entirely. Signed-off-by: Glauber Costa <glommer@parallels.com> Acked-by: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.cz> CC: Kirill A.

2011-12-12cgroup: introduce cgroup_taskset and use it in subsys->can_attach(), ↵Tejun Heo1-10/+21
cancel_attach() and attach() Currently, there's no way to pass multiple tasks to cgroup_subsys methods necessitating the need for separate per-process and per-task methods. This patch introduces cgroup_taskset which can be used to pass multiple tasks and their associated cgroups to cgroup_subsys methods. Three methods - can_attach(), cancel_attach() and attach() - are converted to use cgroup_taskset. This unifies passed parameters so that all methods have access to all information. Conversions in this patchset are identical and don't introduce any behavior change. -v2: documentation updated as per Paul Menage's suggestion.

2011-12-12tcp buffer limitation: per-cgroup limitGlauber Costa1-0/+1
This patch uses the "tcp.limit_in_bytes" field of the kmem_cgroup to effectively control the amount of kernel memory pinned by a cgroup. This value is ignored in the root cgroup, and in all others, caps the value specified by the admin in the net namespaces' view of tcp_sysctl_mem. If namespaces are being used, the admin is allowed to set a value bigger than cgroup's maximum, the same way it is allowed to set pretty much unlimited values in a real box.

2011-12-12socket: initial cgroup code.Glauber Costa1-1/+3
The goal of this work is to move the memory pressure tcp controls to a cgroup, instead of just relying on global conditions. To avoid excessive overhead in the network fast paths, the code that accounts allocated memory to a cgroup is hidden inside a static_branch(). This branch is patched out until the first non-root cgroup is created. So when nobody is using cgroups, even if it is mounted, no significant performance penalty should be seen. This patch handles the generic part of the code, and has nothing tcp-specific.

2011-11-02memcg: skip scanning active lists based on individual sizeJohannes Weiner1-1/+0
Reclaim decides to skip scanning an active list when the corresponding inactive list is above a certain size in comparison to leave the assumed working set alone while there are still enough reclaim candidates around. The memcg implementation of comparing those lists instead reports whether the whole memcg is low on the requested type of inactive pages, considering all nodes and zones. This can lead to an oversized active list not being scanned because of the state of the other lists in the memcg, as well as an active list being scanned while its corresponding inactive list has enough pages. Not only is this wrong, it's also a scalability hazard, because the global memory state over all nodes and zones has to be gathered for each memcg and zone scanned. Make these calculations purely based on the size of the two LRU lists that are actually affected by the outcome of the decision.

2011-09-14memcg: Revert "memcg: add memory.vmscan_stat"Johannes Weiner1-84/+1
Revert the post-3.0 commit 82f9d486e59f5 ("memcg: add memory.vmscan_stat"). The implementation of per-memcg reclaim statistics violates how memcg hierarchies usually behave: hierarchically. The reclaim statistics are accounted to child memcgs and the parent hitting the limit, but not to hierarchy levels in between. Usually, hierarchical statistics are perfectly recursive, with each level representing the sum of itself and all its children. Since this exports statistics to userspace, this may lead to confusion and problems with changing things after the release, so revert it now, we can try again later.

2011-07-26memcg: add memory.vmscan_statKAMEZAWA Hiroyuki1-1/+84
The commit log of 0ae5e89c60c9 ("memcg: count the soft_limit reclaim in...") says it adds scanning stats to memory.stat file. But it doesn't because we considered we needed to make a concensus for such new APIs. This patch is a trial to add memory.scan_stat. This shows - the number of scanned pages(total, anon, file) - the number of rotated pages(total, anon, file) - the number of freed pages(total, anon, file) - the number of elaplsed time (including sleep/pause time) for both of direct/soft reclaim. The biggest difference with oringinal Ying's one is that this file can be reset by some write, as # echo 0 ...../memory.scan_stat Example of output is here. This is a result after make -j 6 kernel under 300M limit.

This will be useful for further memcg developments and need to be developped before we do some complicated rework on LRU/softlimit management. This patch adds a new struct memcg_scanrecord into scan_control struct. sc->nr_scanned at el is not designed for exporting information. For example, nr_scanned is reset frequentrly and incremented +2 at scanning mapped pages. To avoid complexity, I added a new param in scan_control which is for exporting scanning score.
