Subjectdoubt on schedule_work() - work task getting scheduled lately
Hi All,

I have a doubt regarding the workqueue scheduling.

I am using the workqueue for processing the Rx Interrupt data. I am
calling schedule_work() on receiving the Rx interrupt from hardware.

I calculated the time between calling the schedule_work() and
workqueue task actually getting executed, Here I see many cases of
less than 100 us(It is fairly good).

But sometimes I see 10’s of ms and a lot in the 100’s of ms. I have
seen over 0.5 secs too. I would like to know why does sometimes kernel
takes longer time(in milli seconds) to schedule it? Is there any way
to reduce this time gap?


My code:

static void my_workqueuetask(struct work_struct *work)
{
printk("In %s() \n",__func__);

mutex_lock(&rx_bh_mutex);

//Do something here

mutex_lock(&rx_bh_mutex);
}


static irqreturn_t my_irq_handler(int irq, void *dev)
{
……;

if(Rx Interrupt)
schedule_work(&rx_work);

return IRQ_HANDLED;
}
