Yes, to display resctrl control and monitor group separately might be more
friendly to the user. Although I was thinking if the user would like
to see the full path of
the resource, which might make it easier to be parsed:
A) res: group0
mon: mon1
vs
B) res: /group0
mon: /group0/mon_groups/mon1
as proposal B might introduce duplication I'll send a new version
based on proposal A.
