[PATCH v3 13/22] sched: add sched_policy in kernel
From: Alex Shi
Date: Sat Jan 05 2013 - 03:40:52 EST
Current scheduler behavior is just consider the for larger performance
of system. So it try to spread tasks on more cpu sockets and cpu cores
To adding the consideration of power awareness, the patchset adds
2 kinds of scheduler policy: powersaving and balance, the old scheduling
was taken as performance.
performance: the current scheduling behaviour, try to spread tasks
on more CPU sockets or cores.
powersaving: will shrink tasks into sched group until all LCPU in the
group is nearly full.
balance : will shrink tasks into sched group until group_capacity
numbers CPU is nearly full.
The following patches will enable powersaving scheduling in CFS.
