Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the supermarket mailing list.

At moment this cookbook has some limitations.

  1. is not possible configure more groups
  2. is not possible configure for users some different controllers.. but work in progress.


  1. after launch cgroups recipe check cat /cgroup/memory/myfoogroup/tasks you should see the PIDs of your target processes
  2. after a change in /etc/cgconfig.conf or /etc/cgrules.conf the recipe restarts a specify service (only if that service exists)
