SubjectRe: [patch] sched-2.5.59-A2
Date
Ingo,

I repeated the tests with your B0 version and it's still not
satisfying. Maybe too aggressive NODE_REBALANCE_IDLE_TICK, maybe the
difference is that the other calls of load_balance() never have the
chance to balance across nodes.
Here are the results:

kernbench (average of 5 kernel compiles) (standard error in brackets)

The kernbench user time is still too large.
Hackbench improved a lot (understandeable, as idle CPUs steal earlier
from remote nodes).
Numa_test didn't improve, in average we have the same results.

Hmmm, now I really tend towards letting it the way it is in
2.5.59. Except the topology cleanup and renaming, of course. I have no
more time to test a more conservative setting of
IDLE_NODE_REBALANCE_TICK today, but that could help...

Regards,
Erich
