FreeBSD Foundation Announces Resource Containers Project
Dear FreeBSD Community,
We are pleased to announce that Edward Tomasz Napierala has been awarded a grant to implement resource containers and a simple per-jail resource limits mechanism.
Unlike Solaris zones, the current implementation of FreeBSD Jails does not provide per-jail resource limits. As a result, users are often forced to replace jails with other virtualization mechanisms. The goal of this project is to create a single, unified framework for controlling
“It’s great that the Foundation decided to fund this project,” Edward noted. “It will make jail-based virtualization a much better choice in many scenarios, for example for Virtual Private Server providers.”
