CGRULESENGD(8) libcgroup Manual CGRULESENGD(8)
cgrulesengd - control group rules daemon
cgrulesengd is a daemon, which distributes processes to control groups. When any process
changes its effective UID or GID, cgrulesengd inspects the list of rules loaded from the
cgrules.conf file and moves the process to the appropriate control group.
The list of rules is read during the daemon startup is are cached in the daemon's memory.
The daemon reloads the list of rules when it receives SIGUSR2 signal. The daemon reloads
the list of templates when it receives SIGUSR1 signal.
The daemon opens a standard unix socket to receive 'sticky' requests from cgexec.
Write log messages to the given log file. When '-' is used as <path>, log messages
are written to the standard output. If '-f' and '-s' are used together, the logs
are sent to both destinations.
Write log messages to syslog. The default facility is DAEMON. If '-f' and '-s' are
used together, the logs are sent to both destinations.
Don't fork the daemon, stay in the foreground.
Display more log messages. This option can be used three times to enable more ver‐
bose log messages.
Display less log messages.
Equivalent to '-nvvvf -', i.e. don't fork the daemon, display all log messages and
write them to the standard output.
-g <group>|--socket-group=<group> Set the owner of cgrulesengd socket. Assumes that
cgexec runs with proper suid permissions so it can write to the socket when cgexec
--sticky is used.
controls verbosity of the tool. Allowed values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING or ERROR.
