Daniel Poelzleithner has announced to the Linux kernel world his new project named ulatencyd. The focus of ulatencyd is to provide a script-able daemon to dynamically adjust Linux scheduling parameters and other aspects of the Linux kernel.
In his announcement
to the Linux kernel mailing list, "It is not ready for a release yet, but it works to a point I started to get satisfied. I'm able to run a make -j 40 on my dual core machine while looking a full hd movie without problems and the ui from kde still feels good :-)"
The ulatencyd project is currently hosted on GitHub
. There is also this architecture diagram
for those interested in the more technical details of this daemon to tweak the Linux scheduler and other items in real-time.
