Description gcarter 2014-12-26 11:19:10 UTC
Description of problem:
libcgroup-tools lacks a cgred.service file

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 21

How reproducible:
yum install libcgroup-tools

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install libcgroup-tools
2. systemctl status cgred

Actual results:
systemctl status cgred should return a status, instead service file is not found.

cgredengd binary is also not found anywhere.

Expected results:
should install a cgrules.conf file, cgred.service file, and a cgredengd binary.

Additional info:
Fedora 21 repo contains a broken libcgroup-tools rpm, with incomplete installation of cgroups tools.

Comment 1 Jan Chaloupka 2015-01-02 12:42:08 UTC
In version 0.41, cgred was removed as it is depricated.
Control Group Interface in Systemd is replacement.


Comment 2 Frank Ch. Eigler 2015-02-18 15:08:01 UTC
Jan, systemd's extensions do not appear to replace all uses of the cgred* capabilities, specifically per-user tasks that are not governed by systemd services.

Comment 3 Jan Chaloupka 2015-02-18 15:09:53 UTC
Hi Frank,

you are right, this is known problem. At the moment we can not do anything about that. We are in the middle of cgred and systemd :(.

Comment 4 Frank Ch. Eigler 2015-02-18 15:57:58 UTC
Do you mean that even if we installed cgred* and activated it only for non-systemd invoked processes/services, it would conflict somehow?

Comment 5 Jan Chaloupka 2015-02-18 16:05:53 UTC
If you use cgred only for non-systemd's cgroups, there woun't be any conflict. Using cgred for systemd's cgroups will lead to an undefined behaviour.
