[PATCH] mm: memcg: Don't periodically flush stats when memcg is disabled

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


The root memcg is onlined even when memcg is disabled. When it's onlined
a 2 second periodic stat flush is started, but no stat flushing is
required when memcg is disabled because there can be no child memcgs.
Most calls to flush memcg stats are avoided when memcg is disabled as a
result of the mem_cgroup_disabled check [1] added in [2], but the
periodic flushing started in mem_cgroup_css_online is not. Skip it.
