      [feature] Add kill command · 63c2dea8
      Swann Perarnau authored
      This patch adds a command to kill the parent process of a container
      based on the container uuid, triggering the death of the container.
      
      The os.kill command interacts pretty badly with the custom built
      children handling, causing us to catch unwanted exceptions in an effort
      to keep the code running. The waitpid code was also missing a bit about
      catching children exiting because of signals, so we fixed that.
      
      At this point, two things should be paid attention to:
        - we don't distinguish properly between a container and a command.
        This will probably cause issues later, as it should be possible to
        launch multiple programs in the same container, and for partitions to
        survive the death of the parent process.
        - the message format is growing more complex, but without any
        component having strong ownership over it. This will probably cause
        stability issues in the long term, as the format complexifies and we
        lose track of the fields expected from everyone.

      [feature] Add command to list containers · 2f470afb
      Swann Perarnau authored
      This patch adds a very simple command to list the containers currently
      known by the NRM. There's no history or state tracking on the NRM, so
      the code is pretty simple.
      
      We expect that some of the container tracking doesn't need to be sent
      for such a command, so the listing also filters some of the fields.
      
      This patch also adds an 'event' field to container messages, as it would
      probably be needed further for other kind of operations.

      [feature] Implement simple RM for containers · 1c4645cc
      Swann Perarnau authored
      This patch refactor the resource management and hwloc code into a
      working, albeit very simple scheduling policy. Indeed, the previous code
      contained strong assumptions about the output of hwloc matching an Argo
      NodeOS configuration used during the previous phase of the project, that
      always contained enough CPUs and Mems to perform exclusive scheduling.
      
      The current version is simpler, but should work on more regular systems.
      The patch also improves code organization so that introducing more
      complex scheduling algorithms will be simpler.
      
      The testing of this code resulted in the discovery of simple bugs in the
      daemon children handling code, which should work now.

      [feature] Pull the Argus code into the NRM · 92290b22
      Swann Perarnau authored
      The Argus (globalos) launcher had prototype code to read a container
      manifest, create a container using Judi's code, and map resources using
      hwloc.
      
      This patch brings that code, almost intact, into the NRM repo. This code
      is quite ugly, and the resource mapping crashes if the kernel
      configuration isn't right. But it's still a good starting point, and we
      should be able to improve things little by little.
      
      One part in particular needs attention: SIGCHLD handling. We should
      think of using ioloop-provided facilities to avoid this mess.
      
      The patch also contains the associated CLI changes.
      
      Note: the messaging format is starting to be difficult to keep in check,
      as there's conversions and field checks all over the code. See #3 for
      a possible solution.
