Description lejeczek 2013-05-10 03:37:09 EDT
Description of problem:

it seems cgred service starts at boot but each subsequent restart results in segfault
also, more! importantly processes initiated by a user declared in rules are not being acted upon when user logins in

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


How reproducible:

mount {
  cpu = /cgroup/cpu;
  cpuset  = /cgroup/cpuset;
  cpuacct = /cgroup/cpuacct;
  memory  = /cgroup/memory;
  devices = /cgroup/devices;
  freezer = /cgroup/freezer;
  net_cls = /cgroup/net_cls;
  blkio = /cgroup/blkio;

group . {
  perm {
    task {
      uid = root;
      gid = root;
    admin {
      uid = root;
      gid = root;

group limit {
  memory {
    memory.limit_in_bytes = 15G;
  cpuset {
    cpuset.cpus = "5";
    cpuset.mems = 0;


aUser memory,cpuset  limit/

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

declared users are not confined/controlled

Expected results:

when user logs in all processes should be move into the cgroup

cgrulesengd[4202]: segfault at 0 ip 000000345b081321 sp 00007fffbbe2a168 error 4 in libc-2.12.so[345b000000+18a000]
Comment 3 lejeczek 2013-05-10 07:29:24 EDT
libcgroup-0.37-7.1.el6.x86_64 seems to fix above problem but!

at boot time services fail, both

Starting cgconfig service: Failed to parse /etc/cgconfig.conf[FAILED]
and naturally
Starting CGroup Rules Engine Daemon:
Cannot find cgroups, is cgconfig service running?[FAILED]

only to start fine at very first manual service start

Comment 5 Peter Schiffer 2013-08-15 07:16:53 EDT

please, can you try this build?


Also, if the error still persists, modify the /etc/init.d/cgconfig file on line 132:

reboot the machine and attach here /tmp/cglog file. (You might need to temporarily disable selinux if /tmp/cglog file is empty after reboot.)


Comment 6 Jan Chaloupka 2014-08-04 06:23:49 EDT
ping lejeczek, is this still relevant?
Comment 7 lejeczek 2014-08-04 06:59:19 EDT
nope, segfault got fixed, later only cgred restart after system start was needed as user db (slapd backend) wasn't picked up by cgroups.
So on my systems no segfaults now and later (as per my other bugreport) slapd & cgred services initd was reordered.
Comment 8 Jan Chaloupka 2014-08-04 08:06:41 EDT
So segfault is fixed and moving processes into groups during logging is reported in BZ1126003. Then closing as fixed in rhel6.6.
