Subject[RFC PATCH 0/9] Task latency-nice
Date
Introduce new per task property latency-nice for controlling scalability
in scheduler idle CPU search path. Valid latency-nice values are from 1 to
100 indicating 1% to 100% search of the LLC domain in select_idle_cpu. New
CPU cgroup file cpu.latency-nice is added as an interface to set and get.
All tasks in the same cgroup share the same latency-nice value. Using a
lower latency-nice value can help latency intolerant tasks e.g very short
running OLTP threads where full LLC search cost can be significant compared
to run time of the threads. The default latency-nice value is 5.

In addition to latency-nice, it also adds a new sched feature SIS_CORE to
be able to disable idle core search altogether which is costly and hurts
more than it helps in short running workloads.

Finally it also introduces a new per-cpu variable next_cpu to track
the limit of search so that every time search starts from where it ended.
This rotating search window over cpus in LLC domain ensures that idle
cpus are eventually found in case of high load.

Uperf pingpong on 2 socket, 44 core and 88 threads Intel x86 machine with
message size = 8k (higher is better):
threads baseline latency-nice=5,SIS_CORE latency-nice=5,NO_SIS_CORE
8 64.66 64.38 (-0.43%) 64.79 (0.2%)
16 123.34 122.88 (-0.37%) 125.87 (2.05%)
32 215.18 215.55 (0.17%) 247.77 (15.15%)
