Re: [libvirt-users] why CPU pinning doesn't take effect when using lxc-enter-namespace to run an application

Dear all,

I want my container to run on the third CPU core and I define this by the following xml scrpits:
<vcpu placement="static" cpuset="3">1</vcpu>

When I run my application in a container terminal, I can see the application runs on the third core as expected.
When I run my application using lxc-enter-namespace, the CPU pinning doesn't take effect, i.e., the application runs on a core which isn't the third one.

I'm not expert on lxc namespaces, but looking at the code I think that
virDomainLxcEnterNamespace() just doesn't care about such settings.
It does not put the PID created into the cgroup of that container nor
does it put anywhere else.

How can I solve this problem?

I'm thinking of patching this part, but unsure what the right approach
should be it feels like guessing.  Could you create a bug for this
issue, so we can track, please?

In the meantime, I think it would work if you set the affinity of your
process which is calling virDomainLxcEnterNamespace() before and
restore it afterwards.


Any replies are highly appreciated.
