BSD now 169: Scheduling your NetBSD, plus a comment
BSD Now 169 is out, entitled "Scheduling your NetBSD".
Yai, exciting contents in this video BSD centric video podcast!
As it turns out, Allan Jude and Kris Moore
actually read from some guy's NetBSD blog
starting at 0:22:50, going over the
the NetBSD scheduler there.
Exciting - I think I want to blog about this to get
more NetBSD content on the 'net. ;-)
Now, serious, to avoid getting into a recursive content loop,
I'd like to add one thing that may have caused a bit of confusion
at the end:
The problem mentioned at the end that led to the statement
that the patch wasn't perfect wasn't to blame on the patch,
but on my testing environment.
Using all CPU cores on VMware left none for my
normal operating system, and as such it was not funny to test.
That was the reason why I aborted the build-test went from 4 to 2 CPU cores.
Nothing related to the patch itself.
Sorry to Allan and Kris if that didn't come out clear.
Feel free to add that in BSD now 170! :-)
