Introduction to CPU Control

Oracle Solaris Cluster software enables you to control the usage of CPU.

The CPU control facility builds on the functionality available in the Oracle Solaris OS. For information about projects, resource pools, processor sets, and scheduling classes, see Oracle Solaris Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management.

On the Oracle Solaris OS, you can do the following:

Choosing a Scenario

Depending on the configuration choices you make and version of the operating system you choose, you can have different levels of CPU control. All aspects of CPU control described in this chapter are dependent on the resource group property RG_SLM_TYPE being set to automated.

Table 10-1 provides a description of the different configuration scenarios available.

Table 10-1 CPU Control Scenarios

Resource group runs in the global-cluster voting node.

Assign CPU shares to resource groups, providing values for project.cpu-shares and zone.cpu-shares.

Fair Share Scheduler

The first step in the procedures to assign CPU shares to resource groups is to set the scheduler for the system to be the fair share scheduler (FSS). By default, the scheduling class for the Oracle Solaris OS is timesharing schedule (TS). Set the scheduler to be FSS to have the shares configuration take effect.

You can create a dedicated processor set regardless of the scheduler class you choose.
