- Remove the double queue mechanism for timeshare threads. It was slow
due to excess cache lines in play, caused suboptimal scheduling behavior
with niced and other non-interactive processes, complicated priority
- Use a circular queue with a floating starting index for timeshare threads.
Enforces fairness by moving the insertion point closer to threads with
worse priorities over time.
- Give interactive timeshare threads real-time user-space priorities and
place them on the realtime/ithd queue.
- Select non-interactive timeshare thread priorities based on their cpu
utilization over the last 10 seconds combined with the nice value. This
gives us more sane priorities and behavior in a loaded system as
compared to the old method of using the interactivity score. The
interactive score quickly hit a ceiling if threads were non-interactive
and penalized new hog threads.
- Use one slice size for all threads. The slice is not currently
dynamically set to adjust scheduling behavior of different threads.
- Add some new sysctls for scheduling parameters.
Bug fixes/Clean up:
- Fix zeroing of td_sched after initialization in sched_fork_thread() caused
by recent ksegrp removal.
- Fix KSE interactivity issues related to frequent forking and exiting of
kse threads. We simply disable the penalty for thread creation and exit
for kse threads.
- Cleanup the cpu estimator by using tickincr here as well. Keep ticks and
ltick/ftick in the same frequency. Previously ticks were stathz and
others were hz.
- Lots of new and updated comments.
- Many many others.
Tested on: up x86/amd64, 8way amd64.
