|Subject:||[PATCH -V8 00/16] hugetlb: Add HugeTLB controller to control HugeTLB allocation|
|Date:||Sat, 9 Jun 2012 14:29:45 +0530|
Hi, This patchset implements a cgroup resource controller for HugeTLB pages. The controller allows to limit the HugeTLB usage per control group and enforces the controller limit during page fault. Since HugeTLB doesn't support page reclaim, enforcing the limit at page fault time implies that, the application will get SIGBUS signal if it tries to access HugeTLB pages beyond its limit. This requires the application to know beforehand how much HugeTLB pages it would require for its use. The goal is to control how many HugeTLB pages a group of task can allocate. It can be looked at as an extension of the existing quota interface which limits the number of HugeTLB pages per hugetlbfs superblock. HPC job scheduler requires jobs to specify their resource requirements in the job file. Once their requirements can be met, job schedulers like (SLURM) will schedule the job. We need to make sure that the jobs won't consume more resources than requested. If they do we should either error out or kill the application. Changes from V7: * Remove dependency on page cgroup. * Use page.lru.next to store HugeTLB cgroup information. Changes from V6: * Implement the controller as a seperate HugeTLB cgroup. * Folded fixup patches in -mm to the original patches Changes from V5: * Address review feedback. Changes from V4: * Add support for charge/uncharge during page migration * Drop the usage of page->lru in unmap_hugepage_range. Changes from v3: * Address review feedback. * Fix a bug in cgroup removal related parent charging with use_hierarchy set Changes from V2: * Changed the implementation to limit the HugeTLB usage during page fault time. This simplifies the extension and keep it closer to memcg design. This also allows to support cgroup removal with less complexity. Only caveat is the application should ensure its HugeTLB usage doesn't cross the cgroup limit. Changes from V1: * Changed the implementation as a memcg extension. We still use the same logic to track the cgroup and range. Changes from RFC post: * Added support for HugeTLB cgroup hierarchy * Added support for task migration * Added documentation patch * Other bug fixes -aneesh -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to firstname.lastname@example.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
