Subject [jira] [Commented] (MESOS-1094) Introduce pid namespace abstraction to subprocess
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2014 18:15:47 GMT


Timothy St. Clair commented on MESOS-1094:

FWIW In the past we've done configure+compile-checks to determine unshare semantics &
capabilities, then dropped a config.h file with enough preprocessor flags to do the right

> Introducing PID namespacing could simplify signal escalation and process control in for
example the command executor and pluggable containerizer.
> Along the lines of the Fork Exec abstraction in stout, I suggest that we add an abstraction
for Linux namespaces.

> It would be guarded or add convenience methods to ensure system support, for example
bool LinuxNamespace::supports(PID /* | IPC | ... */) or simply let the namespace fall back
to regular fork/exec.
> I have a proof-of-concept version of the command executor which use PID namespaces (in
combination with delay/escalation), and it feels like details around stack allocation and
management could be captured in a new abstraction and make it a neat and nice subsystem to
