The Linux scheduler is well tuned for database, web, and even desktop environments but does not work well for some other workloads. Typically these workloads resort to cpu isolation and pinning, but this is really just avoiding the problem not fixing the core issues. Some possible workloads for discussion:

The problem with isolation is that the system is under utilized, has poor power management, and other control tasks can still interfere. The issue is related to but not the same as real-time.

Possible interested attendees

  • Stephen Hemminger
  • … many people


Notes from the sessions will be recorded using Etherpads (links will be provided). A summary email will be sent to participants and LKML to continue the discussion online.
