Current cgroups implementation does not have a cpuacct subsystem implementation. This subsystem reports important metrics like user and system CPU ticks spent by a process. "cgroups" namespace has subsystem specific utilities for "cpu", "memory" etc. It could use other subsystems specific utils (eg. cpuacct).
In the future, we could also view cgroups as a mesos-subsystem with features like event notifications.
Although refactoring cgroups would be a different epic, listing the possible tasks:
- Have hierarchies, subsystems abstracted to represent the domain
- Create "cgroups service"
- "cgroups service" listen to update events from the OS on files like stats. This would be an interrupt based system(maybe use linux fsnotify)
- "cgroups service" services events to mesos (containers for example).
