Yeah, I know. So the email is try to get to know how to use cgroup to
configure the cpu bandwidth of a specific VM, I am writing a separate
project to control the cfs bandwidth of a VM specified, not taking use
of the virsh shell.
You do this by modifying the domain XML:

http://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html#elementsCPUTuning

documents the<cputune>  element, which includes the shares, period, and
quota tunables that map into the cpu bandwidth cgroup tunables.  So,
rather than directly modifying cgroup, you should instead be modifying
this portion of the XML.

Furthermore, if your domain is already running, then you can hotplug the
tuning via the virDomainGetSchedulerParametersFlags() and
virDomainSetSchedulerParametersFlags() API, with parameter names such as
VIR_DOMAIN_SCEDULER_VCPU_PERIOD which maps back to the<period>
sub-element of the<cputune>  domain XML.  These APIs are already exposed
via the 'virsh schedinfo' command.


Hi Eric,

Those APIs are really the one I needed, thanks very much for the help. After a rough test, it works!

though, I can't find the VIR_DOMAIN_SCEDULER_VCPU_PERIOD macro in the libvirt source code...

BRs,
Dennis
