Subject[RFC/RFT] [PATCH 07/10] cpufreq: intel_pstate: HWP boost performance on busy task migrate
Date
When a busy task migrates to a new CPU boost HWP prformance to max. This
helps workloads on servers with per core P-states, which saturates all
CPUs and then they migrate frequently. But changing limits has extra over
head of issuing new HWP Request MSR, which takes 1000+
cycles. So this change limits setting HWP Request MSR.
Rate control in setting HWP Requests:
- If the current performance is around P1, simply ignore.
- Once set wait till hold time, till remove boost. While the boost
is on, another flags is notified, it will prolong boost.
- The task migrates needs to have some utilzation which is more
than threshold utilization, which will trigger P-state above minimum.
