[zones-discuss] zone resource control, who gets signaled?

2006-10-19 Thread Christine Tran
The zones.cpu-shares rctl has a set of threshhold actions: none, deny and signal=. Say if I set the action as signal=TERM, who actually gets signaled? Is it the process in the zone that's currently queuing to get on CPU, or is it zoneadmd (which presumably will pass it back?) I've always

IIRC for zones.cpu-shares the action is ignored. Something about all infinite resources behave like this, i.e. CPU cycles aren't bounded. To the scheduler, you can always get more cycles if you're willint to wait a nanosecond or six. Which makes sense to me - under what conditions would a

The blastwave.org Samba distribution doesn't have this issue: its shutdown (/etc/init.d/cswsamba stop) uses the pid IDs for smbd, nmbd, and winbindd stored in /opt/csw/var/locks/. A quick FYI on using the blastwave distribution: If you are using sparse zones and need to run Samba with winbind,

Brian It appears the load values obtained within a local zone are measured Brian across the whole system rather than for just the processes within Brian that local zone. For all CPUs in whatever processor set sendmail is running in, which by default would be the whole system. Brian IHAC ...

Solaris Express is supported. You can buy support contracts on it. See http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/solaris-express/ It's just not supported in exactly the same way as S10. Ahh, ok. I called my SUN contact, which suggested not to use Express on production machines (and

Remember that FSS is designed to provide a minimum, but not a max. Depending on CPU use by other threads in the class, a given thread may get more than it's alloted CPU shares, but it will never get less. /jim Brian Kolaci wrote: Jeff Victor wrote: Brian Kolaci wrote: I've been

Thanks, but I think we're getting off topic. I know how FSS works and what its intended for, however the issue isn't with FSS but more that the load averages as seen within a zone are not based on the loads in the zone, but rather to the pool to which the zone is associated with. FSS isn't the
