SubjectRe: [PATCH v8 0/2] sched/numa: introduce numa locality
From
Date
Hi, Peter, Ingo

Could you give some comments please?

As Mel replied previously, he won't disagree the idea, so we're looking
forward the opinion from the maintainers.

Please allow me to highlight the necessary of monitoring NUMA Balancing
again, this feature is critical to the performance on NUMA platform,
it cost and benefit -- lot or less, however there are not enough
information for an admin to analysis the trade-off, while locality could
be the missing piece.

Regards,
Michael Wang
