Subject: [PATCH 00/40] AutoNUMA19
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 28th June 2012 12:55:40 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Hello everyone,

It's time for a new AutoNUMA19 release.

The objective of AutoNUMA is to be able to perform as close as
possible to (and sometime faster than) the NUMA hard CPU/memory
bindings setups, without requiring the administrator to manually setup
any NUMA hard bind.

(NOTE: the TODO slide is obsolete)

git clone --reference linux -b autonuma19 git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/andrea/aa.git

Development autonuma branch:

git clone --reference linux -b autonuma git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/andrea/aa.git

To update:

git fetch
git checkout -f origin/autonuma

Changelog from AutoNUMA-alpha14 to AutoNUMA19:

o sched_autonuma_balance callout location removed from schedule() now it
  in the softirq along with CFS load_balancing

o lots of documentation about the math in the sched_autonuma_balance

o fixed a bug in the fast path detection in sched_autonuma_balance that
  decrease performance with many nodes

o reduced the page_autonuma memory overhead to from 32 to 12 bytes per page

o fixed a crash in __pmd_numa_fixup

o knuma_numad won't scan VM_MIXEDMAP|PFNMAP (it never touched those ptes

o fixed a crash in autonuma_exit

o fixed a crash when split_huge_page returns 0 in knuma_migratedN as the
  has been freed already

o assorted cleanups and probably more

Changelog from alpha13 to alpha14:

o page_autonuma introduction, no memory wasted if the kernel is booted
  on not-NUMA hardware. Tested with flatmem/sparsemem on x86
  autonuma=y/n and sparsemem/vsparsemem on x86_64 with autonuma=y/n.
  "noautonuma" kernel param disables autonuma permanently also when
  booted on NUMA hardware (no /sys/kernel/mm/autonuma, and no
  page_autonuma allocations, like cgroup_disable=memory)

o autonuma_balance only runs along with run_rebalance_domains, to
  avoid altering the usual scheduler runtime. autonuma_balance gives a
  "kick" to the scheduler after a rebalance (it overrides the load
  balance activity if needed). It's not yet tested on specjbb or more
  schedule intensive benchmark, hopefully there's no NUMA
  regression. For intensive compute loads not involving a flood of
  scheduling activity this doesn't show any performance regression,
  and it avoids altering the strict schedule performance. It goes in
  the direction of being less intrusive with the stock scheduler

  Note: autonuma_balance still runs from normal context (not softirq
  context like run_rebalance_domains) to be able to wait on process
  migration (avoid _nowait), but most of the time it does nothing at

Changelog from alpha11 to alpha13:

o autonuma_balance optimization (take the fast path when process is in
  the preferred NUMA node)


o THP native migration (orthogonal and also needed for

o port to ppc64, Ben? Any arch able to support PROT_NONE can also support
  AutoNUMA, in short all archs should work fine with AutoNUMA.
