Cgroup namespace is a relatively new thing in the kernel (v4.9).
So, I am not sure if there is a real world example for this yet.
A simple test in the meanwhile would be to clone() multiple
processes by passing CLONE_NEWCROUP & SIGCHLD flags to each
process, executing a shell and running different workloads
on each of them while tracing.
