cgutil configs

This command show you configurations of cgroups. By default, it shows only changed configurations.

<root>
    notify_on_release=1
    release_agent=/usr/lib/ulatencyd/ulatencyd_cleanup.lua
sys_essential
    swappiness=0
    notify_on_release=1
sys_bg
    swappiness=100
    notify_on_release=1

cgutil event

This command makes cgroup.event_control easy to use. It exits when a state of a target cgroup crosses a threshold which you set, thus, you can know the state of the cgroup has changed.

Example output

$ cgutil event /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/system/sshd.service/memory.usage_in_bytes +1M
$ # It exits when memory usage of processes in the cgroup has increased one more MB.

cgutil pgrep

Example output

$ cgutil pgrep ssh
/: 15072
/: 15074

$ cgutil pgrep ssh -l -f
/: 15072 sshd: ozaki-r [priv]
/: 15074 sshd: ozaki-r@pts/2

system/colord-sane.service
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
system/udisks2.service
        stat={'throttled_time': 0L, 'nr_periods': 0L, 'nr_throttled': 0L}
