Subject: [PATCH 0/3] sched,numa: reduce page migrations with pseudo-interleaving
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 11th April 2014 17:00:26 UTC (over 2 years ago)
The pseudo-interleaving code deals fairly well with the placement
of tasks that are part of workloads that span multiple NUMA nodes,
but the code has a number of corner cases left that can result in
higher than desired overhead.

This patch series reduces the overhead slightly, mostly visible
through a lower number of page migrations, while leaving the
throughput of the workload essentially unchanged.

On smaller NUMA systems, these patches should have little or no
effect. On a 4 node test system, I did see a reduction in the
number of page migrations running SPECjbb2005; autonuma-benchmark
appears to be unaffected.
