Linux A new version of the real-time Linux scheduler called SCHED_DEADLINE has been released on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. For people who missed previous submissions, it consists of a new deadline-based CPU scheduler for the Linux kernel with bandwidth isolation (resource reservation) capabilities. It supports global/clustered multiprocessor scheduling through dynamic task migrations. This new version takes into account previous comments/suggestions and is aligned to the latest mainline kernel. A video about SCHED_DEADLINE is also available on YouTube.

Was really looking forward to an in-depth discussion on the merits of different schedulers ... and all that's posted is the same tired trolls. ;)

Is this really what the Internet has come down to?

I would have liked such a discussion, too, but I simply do not know enough about schedulers to say much or have an informed opinion on the various approaches. Sorry.
