This document provides a step-by-step guide for binding a database instance to a subset of a server's CPUs and memory, using Linux cgroups. Cgroups provide a way to create a named set of CPUs and memory. A database instance that is associated with this cgroup can only use its CPUs and memory.
Using Linux cgroups, a DBA that is consolidating multiple database instances on a single server can
Physically isolate database instances onto different CPUs
Bind instances to specific NUMA nodes to improve performance on NUMA-based systems.
