SubjectRe: [RFC] scheduler: improve SMP fairness in CFS
From
Date
I benchmarked an early version of this code (against 2.6.21) with
SPECjbb, SPEComp, kernbench, etc. on an 8-processor system, and didn't
see any slowdown compared to the stock scheduler. I'll generate the data
again with this version of the code. On the other hand, if locking does
become a problem for certain systems/workloads, increasing
sysctl_base_round_slice can reduce the locking frequency and alleviate
the problem, at the cost of being relatively less fair across the CPUs.
