cgm - a client script for cgmanager
cgm is a client script to simplify making requests of the cgroup man-
ager. It simply calls dbus-send to send requests to the running cgman-
ager or cgproxy.
cgm create <controller> <cgroup>
cgm chown <controller> <cgroup> uid gid
cgm chmod <controller> <cgroup> mode
cgm chmodfile <controller> <cgroup> file mode
cgm remove <controller> <cgroup> [0|1]
cgm getpidcgroup <controller> pid
cgm getpidcgroupabs <controller> pid
cgm movepid <controller> <cgroup> pid
cgm movepidabs <controller> <cgroup> pid
cgm getvalue <controller> <cgroup> file
cgm setvalue <controller> <cgroup> file value
cgm gettasks <controller> <cgroup>
cgm gettasksrecursive <controller> <cgroup>
cgm listchildren <controller> <cgroup>
cgm removeonempty <controller> <cgroup>
cgm prune <controller> <cgroup>
cgm listkeys <controller> <cgroup>
Replace '<controller>' with the desired controller, i.e. mem-
ory, and '<cgroup>' with the desired cgroup, i.e. x1. For cre-
ate, chown, chmod, remove, prune, remove_on_empty, gettasksre-
cursive and movepid, <controller> may be "all" or a comma-sepa-
rated set of cgroups. Remove by default is recursive, but
adding '0' as the last argument will perforn non-recursive dele-
tion. Adding '1' is supported for legacy reasons.
To refer to the current cgroup, use ''.
In order to protect the host from root in containers, cgmanager locks
prevents tasks from administering cgroups which are not under their
own. The exceptions are that root in a container may escape up to the
cgroup of its cgproxy, and root on the host may escape to the root
This means that a user in freezer cgroup /foo cannot list cgroups in /.
However, as root he can use movepidabs to escape to /, then list
cgroups in /.
To create a new cgroup called foo and move your shell into it, you
sudo cgm create all foo
sudo cgm chown all foo $(id -u) $(id -g)
cgm movepid all foo $$
Then to freeze that cgroup,
cgm setvalue freezer foo freezer.state FROZEN
