Ulatency is a daemon that controls how the Linux kernel will spend it's resources on the running processes. It uses dynamic cgroups to give the kernel hints and limitations on processes.

It strongly supports the lua scripting language for writing rules and the scheduler code.

Installation

Kernel options requires:

PROC_EVENTS=y
CONFIG_CGROUPS=y
CONFIG_CGROUP_FREEZER=y
CONFIG_CGROUP_DEVICE=y
CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR=y
CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP=y
CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP_ENABLED=y
CONFIG_CGROUP_SCHED=y
CONFIG_FAIR_GROUP_SCHED=y
CONFIG_RT_GROUP_SCHED=y
CONFIG_BLK_CGROUP=y
CONFIG_CFQ_GROUP_IOSCHED=y

It is provided both in ArchAudio/testing repository and AUR:

yaourt -S ulatencyd

To strat ulatencyd:

# /etc/rc.d/ulatencyd start

If you want ulatencyd start on boot add ulatencyd in DAEMONS section in /etc/rc.conf.

To verify that it works:

ulatency tree

Configuration

Some settings are adjustable in /etc/ulatencyd/ulatencyd.conf and the cgroups that will be used can be changed in /etc/ulatencyd/cgroups.conf
