Filed under

Con Kolivas has updated his out-of-tree process scheduler for the Linux kernel.

The Brain Fuck Scheduler has been revised to version 448 and released on Wednesday for the Linux 3.15 stable kernel.

Besides updating against the kernel interfaces of Linux 3.15, there's no reports of other changes for the BFS scheduler with the v448 revision. Kolivas continues to have no desire to mainline the Brain Fuck Scheduler.

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
