Re: [libvirt] Information needed about "virsh # cpu-stats test_vm"



 
Hi,
we are using currently libvirt-0.10.2.
And yes in our platform cpu contorller(cpuacct) is not mounted.
 
Could you please let us know how we can mount more controllers through libvirt.
 
It would be helpful for us.
 
Regards,
Anusha

Which version of libvirt?  Libvirt 1.0.5 included several improvements
to cgroup; perhaps some of those are relevant?  Libvirt is supposed to
find cgroup controllers, regardless of how you spell their mount point
(it inspects procfs to learn the cgroups of the current process, rather
than hard-coding any particular path).  Are you sure you had cpuacct
mounted?

That makes it sound like you haven't mounted quite enough cgroup
controllers.
