Perhaps this page should include how to do the famous 200 line kernel patch 4 line bash script? ie. --Unhammer 08:09, 11 January 2011 (EST)

The bash script in question appears to be out-of-date, does anyone have an updated version? RunningDroid (talk) 19:48, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Help me understand cgroups

The matlab example given to me is a reason NOT to use cgroups. Why in the world would we want to limit a calculation intensive operation like this it 75 % of the CPU resources? Just nice matlab down to -19 and let it do its thing, I do this all the time with makepkg while I compile for hours. I can use the system and I do not experience any lags while makepkg is calling gcc using all my cores.

Out-of-date and missing information

This article is a bit outdated.


  • Split the Cgroups#Ad-hoc groups section into different libcgroup/cgm sections
  • Mention systemd-run and add other systemd service examples and references
  • Mention difference between cgroups v1 and v2 (merged in Linux 4.5)
  • Add specific examples for controlling memory for a new process (libcgroup / cgm / others?)
  • Compare ulimit/setrlimit/limits.conf vs. nice vs. cgroups.
