[RFC PATCH 7/8] cgroup/cpuset: Document the new cpuset.cpus.isolation_full control file

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Document the new cpuset.cpus.isolation_full control file. Currently only
the rcu_nocbs flag is supported, but more will be added in the future.

+	This file shows the state of full CPU isolation mode for isolated
+	CPUs in isolated partitions.  It shows either "0' if full CPU
+	isolation mode is disabled, or "1" followed by a comma-separated
+	list of additional CPU isolation flags that are enabled.
+	The currently supported CPU isolation flag is:
+	  rcu_nocbs
+		RCU no-callback CPU mode, which prevents such CPUs'
+		callbacks from being invoked in softirq context.
+		Invocation of such CPUs' RCU callbacks will instead be
+		offloaded to "rcuox/N" kthreads created for that purpose.
+		It is similar in functionality to the "rcu_nocbs"
+		boot command line option, but for dynamically created
+		isolated CPUs in isolated partitions.  This flag can
+		only be enabled if such a "rcu_nocbs" option is present
+		in the boot command line of the running kernel.
+	Full CPU isolation mode is enabled by writing a non-zero value
+	to this file and disabled by writing a zero value to it.
 	A read-write single value file which exists on non-root
 	cpuset-enabled cgroups.  This flag is owned by the parent cgroup
