Submission + - Con Kolivas returns! Brain F**K Scheduler is out. 2

myvirtualid writes: "Con Kolivas has done what he swore never to do: returned to the Linux kernel and written a new — and, according to him — waaay better scheduler for the desktop environment. In fact, BFS appears to outperform existing schedulers right up until one hits a 16 CPU machine, at which point he guesses performance would degrade somewhat. According to Kolivas, BFS

was designed to be forward looking only, make the most of lower spec machines, and not scale to massive hardware. ie [sic] it is a desktop orientated scheduler, with extremely low latencies for excellent interactivity by design rather than "calculated", with rigid fairness, nice priority distribution and extreme scalability within normal load levels.
