Also, something to keep in mind - cgroups will not solve this issue completely. It is just affinity enforcement. If the job spawns multiple threads and they all active - it will cause LA growing as well as some other side effects, regardless affinity setting. On big SMP boxes it may actually cause more instability. Anyway, jobs should be configured to use exact amount of threads they request, and it should be monitored.
