Subject: [PATCH 0/2] Mempressure cgroup
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 4th January 2013 08:27:52 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Hi all,

Here is another round of the mempressure cgroup. This time I dared to
remove the RFC tag. :)

In this revision:

- Addressed most of Kirill Shutemov's comments. I didn't bother
  implementing per-level lists, though. It would needlessly complicate the
  logic, and the gain would be only visible with lots of watchers (which
  we don't have for our use-cases). But it is always an option to add the
  feature;

- I've split the pach into two: 'shrinker' and 'levels' parts. While the
  full-fledged userland shrinker is an interesting idea, we don't have any
  users ready for it, so I won't advocate for it too much.

  And since at least Kirill has some concerns about it, I don't want the
  shrinker to block the pressure levels.

  So, these are now separate. At some point, I'd like to both of them
  merged, but if anything, let's discuss them separately;

- Rebased onto v3.8-rc2.

RFC v2 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/10/128):

 - Added documentation, describes APIs and the purpose;
 - Implemented shrinker interface, this is based on Andrew's idea and
   supersedes my "balance" level idea;
 - The shrinker interface comes with a stress-test utility, that is what
   Andrew was also asking for. A simple app that we can run and see if the
   thing works as expected;
 - Added reclaimer's target_mem_cgroup handling;
 - As promised, added support for multiple listeners, and fixed some other
   comments on the previous RFC.

RFC v1 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2012/11/28/109)
