Two Years With Linux BFS, The Brain Fuck Scheduler
Running the CLOMP benchmark also was unaffected by the Brain Fuck Scheduler change, except for any latency differences as noticed by the end-user.
When multiple processing cores were exposed, BFS began to pull ahead over CFS for the x264 multi-media encoding workload.
Really benefiting from the Brain Fuck Scheduler is the CPU-based TTSIOD 3D Renderer. There was not any performance difference when just one of the Intel CPU cores was enabled, but with two cores, BFS was faster by 13%, and with all four cores active the BFS lead was 27%.
