This patch adds a fork connector in the do_fork() routine.
The fork connector is used by the Enhanced Linux System Accounting
Does it also meet all the in-kernel requirements for other accounting
If not, what else do those other projects need?
As the discussion in this thread of the past few days showed, this
patch intends to take care of process grouping, but not the
accounting data collection. Besides my concern of possibility of
data loss, this patch also provides CSA information to handle process
grouping as it intends to do. I plan to run some testing to see percentage
of data loss when system is under stress test, but improvement at
CBUS as Evgeniy indicated should help!
Please be advised that i still need an do_exit handling to save accounting
data. But, it is a separate issue.
