Control groups (cgroups) are a collection of resources, such as CPU, memory, network, and so on, which have collective settings on how these resources are used by applications and processes. 
Cgroups constitute a functionality in Oracle Linux that enables you to further manage the use of resources by setting limits, prioritizing, isolating, or allocating these resources.
Thus, you are able to control resource use on a granular level to obtain a more efficient system performance.  

Control groups version 2 (cgroups v2) are not supported in Oracle Linux 7. They are supported in Oracle Linux 8 and above.
