Subject[PATCH v9 3/7] cpuset: Add cpuset.sched.load_balance flag to v2
Date
The sched.load_balance flag is needed to enable CPU isolation similar to
what can be done with the "isolcpus" kernel boot parameter. Its value
can only be changed in a scheduling domain with no child cpusets. On
a non-scheduling domain cpuset, the value of sched.load_balance is
inherited from its parent. This is to make sure that all the cpusets
within the same scheduling domain or partition has the same load
balancing state.

This flag is set by the parent and is not delegatable.

Further changes made to "cpuset.cpus" is allowed as long as
the first condition above is still true.

+ A parent scheduling domain root cgroup cannot distribute all
+ its CPUs to its child scheduling domain root cgroups unless
+ its load balancing flag is turned off.
+
+ cpuset.sched.load_balance
+ A read-write single value file which exists on non-root
+ cpuset-enabled cgroups. It is a binary value flag that accepts
+ either "0" (off) or "1" (on). This flag is set by the parent
+ and is not delegatable. It is on by default in the root cgroup.
+
+ When it is on, tasks within this cpuset will be load-balanced
+ by the kernel scheduler. Tasks will be moved from CPUs with
+ high load to other CPUs within the same cpuset with less load
+ periodically.
+
+ When it is off, there will be no load balancing among CPUs on
+ this cgroup. Tasks will stay in the CPUs they are running on
+ and will not be moved to other CPUs.
+
+ The load balancing state of a cgroup can only be changed on a
+ scheduling domain root cgroup with no cpuset-enabled children.
+ All cgroups within a scheduling domain or partition must have
+ the same load balancing state. As descendant cgroups of a
+ scheduling domain root are created, they inherit the same load
+ balancing state of their root.
