SubjectRe: [Lse-tech] Re: NUMA scheduler 2nd approach
Date
Hi Christoph,

I just finished some experiments which show that the finetuning can
really be left for later. So this approach is ok for me. I hope we can
get enough support for integrating this tiny numa scheduler.

I didn't do all possible measurements, the interesting ones are with
patches 1-4 (nb-smooth) and 1-5 (nb-sm-var1, nb-sm-var2) applied. They
show pretty consistent results (within error bars). The fine-tuning in
patch #5 doesn't buy us much right now (on my platform), so we can
leave it out.

Here's the data:

The kernels used:
- stock52 : 2.5.52 + ia64 patch
- sched52 : stock52 + old numa scheduler
- minisched52 : stock52 + miniature NUMA scheduler (cannot load
balance across nodes)
- nb-smooth : minisched52 + node balancer + smooth node load patch
- nb-sm-var1 : nb-smooth + variable internode_lb, (MIN,MAX) = (4,40)
- nb-sm-var2 : nb-smooth + variable internode_lb, (MIN,MAX) = (1,16)

Best regards,
Erich
