"mostly fix" was probably a bit optimistic. Here's my current #s.
(All cases are the same single threaded kernel build, same hardware, etc. The
changes are recent vs 1yr old head kernel and what is noted.)
- 1yr old kernel, SMP, SCHED_ULE 94minutes
- 1yr old kernel, no SMP, SCHED_ULE 111minutes
- recent kernel, SMP, SCHED_4BSD 104minutes
- recent kernel, no SMP, SCHED_ULE 113minutes
- recent kernel, SMP, SCHED_ULE,
r312426 reverted 122minutes
- recent kernel, SMP, SCHED_ULE 148minutes
So, reverting r312426 only gets rid of about 1/2 of the degradation.
One more thing I will note is that the system CPU is higher for the cases that
with lower/better elapsed times:
- 1yr old kernel, SMP, SCHED_ULE 545s
- 1yr old kernel, no SMP, SCHED_ULE 293s
- recent kernel, no SMP, SCHED_ULE 292s
- recent kernel, SMP, SCHED_ULE 466s
cperciva@ is running a highly parallelized buuildworld and he sees better
slightly better elapsed times and much lower system CPU for SCHED_ULE.
As such, I suspect it is the single threaded, processes mostly sleeping waiting
for I/O case that is broken.
I suspect this is how many people use NFS, since a highly parallelized make
not be a typical NFS client task, I think?
There are other changes to sched_ule.c in the last year, but I'm not sure which
would be easy to revert and might make a difference in this case?
ps: I've cc'd cperiva@ and he might wish to report his results. I am hoping he
does try a make without "-j" at some point.
