SubjectRE: Sched.c ??
Date
hi,
the decay function can be modified by changing the
numbers. e.g. if you changed prev->avg_slice*1 to prev->avg_slice*2
then you would have to change the denominator to 3, and
that would slow the attack/decay rate of the function.

You would expect these values to be defined in constants, but
I guess no-one ever plays around with them, so they stay as
they are.

cheers
Greg
