- isolcpus= [KNL,SMP] Isolate CPUs from the general scheduler.
- The argument is a cpu list, as described above.
-
- This option can be used to specify one or more CPUs
- to isolate from the general SMP balancing and scheduling
- algorithms. You can move a process onto or off an
- "isolated" CPU via the CPU affinity syscalls or cpuset.
- <cpu number> begins at 0 and the maximum value is
- "number of CPUs in system - 1".
-
- This option is the preferred way to isolate CPUs. The
- alternative -- manually setting the CPU mask of all
- tasks in the system -- can cause problems and
- suboptimal load balancer performance.
