CGROUP-METRICS

Node Module for reading cgroup metrics. Reads from /sys/fs/cgroup/.

Memory Metrics:

Memory reads from path /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/memory:

Raw values:

  • stat.rss: # of bytes of anonymous and swap cache memory
  • kmem.usage_in_bytes: current kernel memory allocation
  • limit_in_bytes: limit of memory usage

Calculated values:

  • containerUsage(): stats.rss + kmem.usage_in_bytes
  • containerUsagePercentage():stats.rss + kmem.usage_in_bytes / limit_in_bytes

CPU Metrics:

Raw CPU values: CPU reads from path /sys/fs/cgroup/:

  • cpuacct.usage: total CPU time (in nanoseconds) since the start of the container obtained by this cgroup (CPU time obtained by all the tasks) in the system
  • cpuacct.stat: reports the user and system CPU time consumed by all tasks in this cgroup (including tasks lower in the hierarchy)
    • user: CPU time (in nanoseconds) spent by tasks of the cgroup in user mode
    • system: CPU time (in nanoseconds) spent by tasks of the cgroup in kernel mode
    • timestamp: timestamp of when the measurement was taken

Both calls will return an object containing one or more CpuMetric objects for a specific cpu task:

  • cpuNanosSinceContainerStart: total CPU time (in nanoseconds) since the start of the container obtained by this cgroup in the system
  • timestamp: timestamp of when the measurement was taken

Calculated CPU values:

  • calculateUsage: takes two instances of calls to cpuacct.usage or cpuacct.stat and returns the calculated usage in percentage of CPU time: second time since container start - first time since container start / total time

Installation

npm install cgroup-metrics

Usage

You can access each metric separately using the async functions for each metric

Memory Metrics

const cgroup = require('cgroup-metrics');

const memory = cgroup.memory();
const containerUsage = await memory.containerUsage();
console.log(containerUsage);

const containerUsagePercentage = await memory.containerUsagePercentage(containerUsage);
console.log(containerUsagePercentage);

CPU Metrics

const cpu = cgroup.cpu();

/* Returns an object like:
* {
*    cpuNanosSinceContainerStart: 120234,
*    timestamp: 153686574
* }
* */
const cpuacct_usage = await cpu.usage();
console.log(`Total CPU time since start of container (ns): ${cpuacct_usage.cpuNanosSinceContainerStart}`);


/* Returns an object like:
* {
*     user: {
*               cpuNanosSinceContainerStart: 120234,
*               timestamp: 153686574
*          },
*    system: {
*               cpuNanosSinceContainerStart: 120234,
*               timestamp: 153686574
*           },
* }
* */
const cpuacct_stats = await cpu.stat();
console.log(`CPU user count object: ${cpuacct_stat.user}`);
console.log(`CPU system count object: ${cpuacct_stat.system}`);

const calculateUsage = await cpu.calculateUsage(cpuacct_usage1, cpuacct_usage2);

All Metrics

Or you can use the function metrics to get an object of all the metrics:

const metrics = await cgroup.metrics();

console.log(`Container usage: ${metrics.memory.containerUsage}`);
console.log(`Container usage percentage: ${metrics.memory.containerUsagePercentage}`);

console.log(`Total CPU time since start of container (ns): ${metrics.cpuacct.usagecpuNanosSinceContainerStart}`);
console.log(`CPU user count: ${metrics.cpuacct.stat.user}`);
console.log(`CPU system count: ${metrics.cpuacct.stat.system}`);

If you call metrics with parameter flatten set to true, it will return a flattened (1D) js object:

const metrics = await cgroup.metrics(true);
console.log(`Memory usage in the container: ${metrics["memory.containerUsage"]}`)

Error Handling

If there is no container running or there is an issue reading the file path, the function call will error something like this:

Error: Error reading file /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/memory.stat, Message: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/sys/fs/cgroup/memory/memory.stat'

If one of the files is empty, it will return an error like this:

Error: Error reading file /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/memory.stat, Message: File is empty

If a file is malformed, it will return an error like this:

Error: One or more metrics are malformed. containerUsage: 1234, limit: NaN

Or:

Error reading file /sys/fs/cgroup/cpuacct/cpuacct.stat, Message: Cannot read property 'split' of undefined
