Scheduler Workloads Microconference Accepted into the Linux Plumbers Conference

New to Linux Plumbers Conference this year, the Scheduler Workloads Microconference will focus on understanding various workloads and their impact on the Linux Kernel Scheduler. The objective is to initiate a cross organizational and architectural discussion involving currently available (or in development) benchmarks and their effectiveness in evaluating the scheduler for these workloads.

The agenda for this year will focus on sharing current workload and benchmark tools and traces and how these can be used to improve the various Linux subsystems, including power management and real time.  Given that benchmarking the Linux scheduler is a controversial topic and often depends on proprietary tools, we’ll also discuss how to develop fully open source tools and benchmarks for this.

For more details on this, please see this microconference’s wiki page.

We hope to see you there!
