SubjectRe: Recent kernel SMP scalability Benchmark/White-paper References.

Hi Austin,

Check out http://lse.sourceforge.net
and http://sourceforge.net/projects/lse

(lse= linux scalability effort)

That might be more information than you were looking for.
Another good resource is the lse mailing list at:
lse-tech@lists.sourceforge.net

We have bi-weekly conference calls where anyone is welcome
to join and ask questions or report your work or whatever.

As a developer working on SMP scalability on Linux I would
say it is getting better but we still have work to do.
