       cgexec - run the task in given control groups


       cgexec [-h] [-g <controllers>:<path>] [--sticky] command [arguments]


       The cgexec program executes the task command with arguments arguments in the given control

       -g <controllers>:<path>
              defines the control groups in which the task will be run.  controllers is a list of
              controllers  and  path  is  the  relative  path  to  control  groups  in  the given
              controllers list.

              This flag can be  used  multiple  times  to  define  multiple  pairs  of  lists  of
              controllers  and  relative  paths.  Instead of the list of all mounted controllers,
              the wildcard b"*b" can be used.

              If this option is not used, cgexec will automatically place the task in  the  right
              cgroup based on /etc/cgrules.conf.

              If  /etc/cgrules.conf configuration file is used, there can be used template names.
              Then  the  control  group  name  contains  a  template  in  destination  tag   (see
              cgrules.conf  (5))  and  if  the  cgroup  does  not  exist in execution time, it is
              created, based on /etc/cgconfig.conf specification.  If the specifications are  not
              present the group is created with the default kernel values.

       -h, --help
              Display this help and exit.

              If  running  the  task  command  with  this  option,  the  daemon  of service cgred
              (cgrulesengd process) does not change both the task of the command  and  the  child
              tasks.  Without this option, the daemon does not change the task of the command but
              it changes  the  child  tasks  to  the  right  cgroup  based  on  /etc/cgrules.conf


       cgexec -g *:test1 ls
       runs command ls in control group test1 in all mounted controllers.

       cgexec -g cpu,memory:test1 ls -l
       runs command ls -l in control group test1 in controllers cpu and memory.

       cgexec -g cpu,memory:test1 -g swap:test2 ls -l
       runs  command ls -l in control group test1 in controllers cpu and memory and control group
       test2 in controller swap.
