Abstract

The Linux kernel feature Control Groups (cgroups) has been used to gather metrics on the resource usage of single and eight-core ATLAS workloads. It has been used to study the effects on performance of a reduction in the amount of physical memory. The results were used to optimise cluster performance, and consequently increase cluster throughput by up to 10%.
