Hello, I've read about thread affinity and I see that it is popular in high-performance-libraries (for example https://github.com/OpenHFT/Java-Thread-Affinity). Ok, jugglery a thread between cores has impact (generally) on performance so it is reasonable to bind a specific thread to a specific core.
*Intro*: It is obvious that the best idea to make it possible that any process will be an owner of core [let's call it X] (in multi-core CPU). I mean that main thread in a process will be one and only thread executed on core X. So, there is no problem with context-switching and cache flushing [with expect system calls]. I know that it requires a special implementation of scheduler in kernel, so it requires a modification of [Linux] kernel. I know that it is not so easy and so on. *Question*: But, we know that we have systems that need a high performance. So, it could be a solution with context-switching once and at all. So, why there is no a such solution? My suspicions are: * it is pointless, the bottleneck is elsewhere [However, it is meaningful to get thread-affinity] * it is too hard and there is too risky to make it not correctly * there is no need * forking own linux kernel doesn't sound like a good idea. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "mechanical-sympathy" group.
