I am not sure if throttling an application's cpu usage by explicitly
putting it to sleep
in order to restrain it from making more IO requests is the way to go
here (though I can't think
of anything better right now).
With this bandwidth controller, a cpu-intensive job which otherwise
does not care about its IO
performance needs to be pin-point accurate about IO bandwidth
required in order to not suffer
from cpu-throttling. IMHO, if a cgroup is exceeding its limit for a
given resource, the throttling
should be done _only_ for that resource.
