Scheduler Microconference Accepted into 2020 Linux Plumbers Conference

We are pleased to announce that the Scheduler Microconference has been accepted into the 2020 Linux Plumbers Conference!

The scheduler is an important functionality of the Linux kernel as it decides what gets to run, when and for how long. With different topologies and workloads this is no easy task to give the user the best experience possible. During the Scheduler microconference at LPC last year, we started the work to make SCHED_DEADLINE safe for kthreads and improving load balancing. This year, we continue working on core scheduling, unifying the interface for TurboSched and task latency nice, and continue the discussion on proxy execution.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Core Scheduling – How do we merge?
  • Capacity Awareness – For busy systems
  • Interrupt Awareness
  • Proxy Execution – More cases
  • Latency Nice – What interfaces do our use cases like?
  • Load Balancing
  • NUMA load balancing
  • Formal specification of SCHED_DEADLINE
  • Flattening CPU RQ hierarchy

Come and join us in the discussion of controlling what tasks get to run on your machine and when. We hope to see you there!
