This series will expose pid inside containers
Also show the hierarchy of pid namespcae.
Then we could know how pid looks inside a container
and their ns relationships.
1. helpful for nested container check/restore
>From /proc/PID/ns/pid, we could know whether two pid lived
in the same ns.
>From this patch, we could know whether two pid had relationship
between each other.
2. used for pid translation from container
init_pid_ns ns1 ns2
t2 `- 3 1
t3 `- 4 3
t4 `- 5 `- 5 1
t5 `- 6 `- 8 3
It could solve problems like: we see a pid 3 goes wrong
in container's log, what is its pid on hosts:
a) inside container:
# readlink /proc/3/ns/pid
b) on host:
# cat /proc/pidns_hierarchy
Then we could easily find /proc/16263/ns/pid->4026532388.
On host, we knew that reported pid 3 is in level 2,
and its parental pid ns is from pid 14918.
c) on host, check child of 16263, grep it from status:
NSpid: 16268 8 3
We knew that pid 16268 is pid 3 reported by container.
v5: collect pid by find_ge_pid;
use local list inside nslist_proc_show;
use get_pid, remove mutex lock.
v4: simplify pid collection and some performance optimizamtion
fix another race issue.
v3: fix a race issue and memory leak issue in pidns_hierarchy;
add another two fielsd: NSpgid and NSsid.
v2: use a procfs text file instead of dirs under /proc for
showing pidns hierarchy;
add two new fields: NStgid and NSpid
keep fields of Tgid and Pid unchanged for back compatibility.
Chen Hanxiao (2):
procfs: show hierarchy of pid namespace
/proc/PID/status: show all sets of pid according to ns
