Subject: Best CONFIG_HZ value for scheduler testing?
Date: Fri, 27 Apr 2007 10:44:13 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <200704271044.13916.Martin@lichtvoll.de> (raw)


Hi Con and Ingo!

What would be the best CONFIG_HZ value for scheduler testing? I used 
1000HZ for a long time, but use 300HZ since 2.6.20. This worked well 
enough for sd-0.46 and previous versions and ck patches...

Any recommendation? I thought 300HZ was nice two to its compatibility with 
PAL and NTSC refresh rates, but then I have notebooks with LCD displays 
and do not use any TV cards whatsoever and it might be totally irrelevant 
to me.

Well 2.6.21 is out so I may switch to DYNTICKS soon anyway...

About scheduler test results on my two ThinkPads... These are just two 
ThinkPads - so my results are not that representative . By contacting the 
people on the linux-thinkpad mailinglist it might be possible to get 
broader test results[1]. I would be providing my precompiled kernels as 
Debian packages if you desired - they should work with Debian Etch, but 
they use libata PATA drivers.
