How, it works out fine in my calculation

50 + 40 for G2 and G3, make sure that G1 gets 10%, since others are
limited to 90%
50 + 40 for G1 and G3, make sure that G2 gets 10%, since others are
limited to 90%
50 + 50 for G1 and G2, make sure that G3 gets 0%, since others are
limited to 100%

Now if we really have zeros, I would recommend using

cgroup-limits 10 10 and you'll see that you'll get 90, 90 as output.

Adding zeros to the calcuation is not recommended. Does that help?
