BFS 426 Scheduler Released For Linux 3.7 Kernel
Version 426 of the BFS scheduler was released this weekend for the Linux 3.7 kernel.
"These are patches designed to improve system responsiveness and interactivity with specific emphasis on the desktop, but suitable to any commodity hardware workload." This was the brief release announcement by Con Kolivas for the latest version of the Brain Fuck Scheduler. As usual, there's patches in various forms for running BFS 426 against the Linux 3.7.x series.
There's also a few other comments concerning this latest out-of-tree scheduler update on the Con Kolivas blog.
For those who missed it, yesterday a forked version of BFS was announced. This new Linux CPU scheduler based upon BFS is trying to implement multiple run-queues in order to provide greater scalability.
