NAME cgcreate - create new cgroup(s)

SYNOPSIS cgcreate [-h] [-t <tuid>:<tgid>] [-a <agid>:<auid>] [-f mode] [-d mode] [-s mode] -g <controllers>:<path> [-g ...]

DESCRIPTION The command creates new cgroup(s) defined by the options -g.

-a <agid>:<auid> defines the name of the user and the group which own the rest of the defined control groups files. These users are allowed to set subsystem parameters and create subgroups. The default value is the same as has the parent cgroup.

-d, --dperm=mode sets the permissions of a control groups directory. The permis- sions needs to be specified as octal numbers e.g. -d 775.

-f, --fperm=mode sets the permissions of the control groups parameters. The per- missions needs to be specified as octal numbers e.g. -f 775. The value is not used as given because the current owners per- missions are used as an umask (so 777 will set group and others permissions to the owners permissions).

-g <controllers>:<path> defines control groups to be added. controllers is a list of controllers and path is the relative path to control groups in the given controllers list. This option can be specified multi- ple times.

-h, --help display this help and exit

-s, --tperm=mode sets the permissions of the control group tasks file. The per- missions needs to be specified as octal numbers e.g. -s 775. The value is not used as given because the current owners per- missions are used as an umask (so 777 will set group and others permissions to the owners permissions).

-t <tuid>:<tgid> defines the name of the user and the group, which owns tasks file of the defined control group. I.e. this user and members of this group have write access to the file. The default value is the same as has the parent cgroup.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES CGROUP_LOGLEVEL controls verbosity of the tool. Allowed values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING or ERROR.
