Isn't that what the precision argument in callout is for? See callout_reset_sbt(9): The sbt, pr, and flags arguments provide more control over the scheduled time including support for higher resolution times, specifying the precision of the scheduled time, and setting an absolute deadline instead of a relative timeout. The callout is scheduled to execute in a time window which begins at the time specified in sbt and extends for the amount of time specified in pr. If sbt specifies a time in the past, the window is adjusted to start at the current time. A non-zero value for pr allows the callout subsystem to coalesce callouts scheduled close to each other into fewer timer interrupts, reducing processing overhead and power consumption. These flags may be specified to adjust the interpretation of sbt and pr: -- John-Mark Gurney Voice: +1 415 225 5579 "All that I will do, has been done, All that I have, has not." _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
