Subject: Re: [RFC v2 00/34] SLUB: reduce irq disabled scope and make it RT compatible
Date: Fri, 2 Jul 2021 20:29:44 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210702182944.lqa7o2a25to6czju@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210609113903.1421-1-vbabka@suse.cz>

I replaced my slub changes with slub-local-lock-v2r3.
I haven't seen any complains from lockdep or so which is good. Then I
did this with RT enabled (and no debug):

  These 3 seconds here are probably in the noise range.

So this is outside of the noise range.
I'm not sure where this is coming from. My guess would be higher lock
contention within the memory allocator.

With that series the PARTIAL slab can be indeed enabled. I have (had) a
half done series where I had PARTIAL enabled and noticed a slight
increase in latency so made it "default y on !RT". It wasn't dramatic
but appeared to be outside of noise.
