Yes (2.6 vanilla and 2.4-aa at that, i haven't tested 2.4-vanilla)
Ingo's sched.patch makes it a bit better (from 1x CPU to 1.5-1.7xCPU),
but still much worse than the max of 3.7x-4x CPU bandwidth.
Andi, could you please try the patch below - this will test whether this
has to do with the rate of balancing between NUMA nodes. The patch
itself is not correct (it way overbalances on NUMA), but it tests the
This works much better, but wildly varying (my tests go from 2.8xCPU to ~3.8x CPU for 4 CPUs. 2,3 CPU cases are ok). A bit more consistent results would be better though.
