Outdated information about cgconfig service in Resource Management Guide for Fedora 17
Last modified: 2015-05-28 05:04:35 EDT
Description of problem:
The Resource Management Guide for Fedora 17 contains outdated information about cgconfig service in section 2.1 "The cgconfig Service"
The guide states that the cgconfig service is not started by default in Fedora 17. It is not true. In addition, the guide contains phrase "When you start the service with chkconfig" that is wrong for any release. For Fedora 17 is should be "When you start the service with the <command>systemctl start</command> command".
Ah, I missed that one! Will update it asap. Do you know if the cgconfig service was started by default on f16 and f15?
The cgconfig service is "on" by default on Fedora 15 and "off" on Fedora 16.
Both Fedora versions allow you to control the service with chkconfig.
It is not the case for Fedora 17.
Ok, this should be fixed. Moving to ON_QA. Can you verify the fix so I can close this bug? And thanks again for reporting this issue.
I would rephrase the paragraph like that:
The <systemitem class="service">cgconfig</systemitem> service is enabled by default on &MAJOROSVER;. After reboot or when you restart the service with <command>systemctl restart cgconfig.service</command> command, it reads the cgroup configuration file — <filename>/etc/cgconfig.conf</filename>. Cgroups are therefore recreated from session to session and become persistent. Depending on the contents of the configuration file, <application>cgconfig</application> can create hierarchies, mount necessary file systems, create cgroups, and set subsystem parameters for each group.
Sure thing. Rephrased! I'll publish this as soon as possible. Change was committed to Git (ac5ff6462e95abfb615d9da9d06fdb449c9f7e53).
