Fixed In Version: glusterfs-3.12.2-2
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Some gluster daemons like glustershd have a higher cpu or memory consumption, when there is a large amount of data/entries to healed. This results in slow consumption of resources. You can resolve this by running the control-cpu-load.sh script. This script used the control groups for regulating cpu and memory of any gluster daemon.

Description Bipin Kunal 2017-08-23 15:23:42 UTC
Description of problem: This RFE is being raised in order to have controls available for gluster process in terms of resource usage. Sometime we see that some process over consume resources. There should be a way in gluster to control that, and this can be easily done using cgroups. 

In past we have seen issue with self heal daemon with replicate and EC volumes.

Here are two reported issues :


Expected : resource restriction to be done from gluster. Some cli or tool to do that.

Hi Rahul,

We are targeting this for 3.4 to control cpu for selfheald, Can you please test it?
Steps are available in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1478395#c12

Hi Mohit,

   This RFE was based on discussion with Alok/Ric/Sankarshan during Ric's Pune visit. Suggestion was to have tuned-adm profile for this kind of tuning and we should avoid giving them bunch of manual steps.

Comment 9 Nag Pavan Chilakam 2018-04-04 12:38:51 UTC
Test version:3.12-2-6
moving to verified as below

based on my testing in comment at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1406363#c12

and also tested below for memory consumption management.
However, I noticed that memory consumption doesnt go back to the set limit,
however, kernel notifies the non-compliance as below , as by default oom killing is disabled(for which I would raise a new bug)
[root@dhcp37-174 ~]# cat /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/system.slice/glusterd.service/cgroup_gluster_26704/memory.failcnt 

So the script is working as expected, as once memory consumption is crossing the limit, we can notice it as above with this script, which was not previously available.

[root@dhcp37-174 ~]# top -n 1 -b|grep gluster
26704 root      20   0 2532892 119024   4936 S 125.0  1.5   1:36.07 glusterfsd

Enter Any gluster daemon pid for that you want to control MEMORY.
If you want to continue the script to attach daeomon with new cgroup. Press (y/n)?y
Creating child cgroup directory 'cgroup_gluster_26704 cgroup' for glusterd.service.
Enter Memory value in Mega bytes [100,8000000000000]:
Entered memory limit value is 110.
Setting 115343360 to memory.limit_in_bytes for /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/system.slice/glusterd.service/cgroup_gluster_26704.
Tasks are attached successfully specific to 26704 to cgroup_gluster_26704.
