I'll try to summarize and propose a test scenario. I don't know whether
this helps or not.
We should have two different task types for this one. The first would be
Super Affine tasks. They should use few to none syscalls, use medium
math, have low memory footprint. No syscalls means this tasks will never
stop for memory/disk or other activity so each time the queue is looked
upon this task will be ready to run. Medium math means this shouldn't be
just a simple big loop so that processor will really compute something
with this data. Low memory footprint means this task can reside with
data on CPU L1 cache for eons. I'm not sure about branch prediction,
should it be distorted or not...
The other task type would be Worker. It doesn't matter what it does but
it agressively uses syscalls like working with files/directories.
There should be at least one SA-task per core and at least 10 (?)
W-tasks per core.
Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow.
