SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH v3 00/16] Core scheduling v3
From
Date
Hello everyone,

This is Dario, from SUSE. I'm also interesting in core-scheduling, and
using it in virtualization use cases.

Just for context, I'm working in virt since a few years, mostly on Xen,
but I've done Linux stuff before, and I am getting back at it.

For now, I've been looking at the core-scheduling code, and run some
benchmarks myself.

This, and of course the numbers below too, is very interesting.

So, here comes my question: I've done a benchmarking campaign (yes,
I'll post numbers soon) using this branch:

https://github.com/digitalocean/linux-coresched.git vpillai/coresched-v3-v5.1.5-test
https://github.com/digitalocean/linux-coresched/tree/vpillai/coresched-v3-v5.1.5-test

Last commit:
7feb1007f274 "Fix stalling of untagged processes competing with tagged
processes"

Since I see that, in this thread, there are various patches being
proposed and discussed... should I rerun my benchmarks with them
applied? If yes, which ones? And is there, by any chance, one (or maybe
more than one) updated git branch(es)?

Thanks in advance and Regards
