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



Dear Martin,

Thank you for your suggestion. I have submitted a bug report on this ( libvirt version 1.2.5). For your reference, the report No. is 1176584.

Just like you said, I set the affinity of my process to temporarily solve this problem.

With my warmest regards

Cheng

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.

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.
