Subject: [patch 0/8]: use runnable load avg in balance
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 10th May 2013 15:17:21 UTC (over 3 years ago)
This patchset bases on tip/sched/core.

This version changed the runnable load avg value setting for new task
in patch 3rd.

We also tried to include blocked load avg in balance. but find many
benchmark
performance dropping. Guess the too bigger cpu load drive task to be waken
on remote CPU, and cause wrong decision in periodic balance.

I retested on Intel core2, NHM, SNB, IVB, 2 and 4 sockets machines with
benchmark kbuild, aim7, dbench, tbench, hackbench, oltp, and netperf
loopback
etc. The performance is better now. 

On SNB EP 4 sockets machine, the hackbench increased about 50%, and result
become stable. on other machines, hackbench increased about 2~10%.
oltp increased about 30% in NHM EX box.
netperf loopback also increased on SNB EP 4 sockets box.
no clear changes on other benchmarks.
 
Michael Wang had tested previous version on pgbench on his box:

And Morten tested previous version too.
