Subject[PATCH v4 10/19] mm: memcg/slab: deprecate memory.kmem.slabinfo
Date
Deprecate memory.kmem.slabinfo.

An empty file will be presented if corresponding config options are
enabled.

The interface is implementation dependent, isn't present in cgroup v2,
and is generally useful only for core mm debugging purposes. In other
words, it doesn't provide any value for the absolute majority of users.

A drgn-based replacement can be found in tools/cgroup/slabinfo.py .
It does support cgroup v1 and v2, mimics memory.kmem.slabinfo output
and also allows to get any additional information without a need
to recompile the kernel.

If a drgn-based solution is too slow for a task, a bpf-based tracing
tool can be used, which can easily keep track of all slab allocations
belonging to a memory cgroup.
