3.4. Removing Control Groups

Remove cgroups with the cgdelete command that has syntax similar to that of cgcreate. Enter the following command as root:
~]# cgdelete controllers:path
where:
  • controllers is a comma-separated list of controllers.
  • path is the path to the cgroup relative to the root of the hierarchy.
For example:
~]# cgdelete net_prio:/test-subgroup
cgdelete can also recursively remove all subgroups when the -r option is specified.
Note that when you delete a cgroup, all its processes move to its parent group.
