Subject: [PATCH 2/3] sched/rt: add a tuning knob to allow changing SCHED_RR timeslice
Date: Thu, 7 Feb 2013 09:47:04 -0600
Message-ID: <20130207094704.13751796@riff.lan> (raw)


[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 3892 bytes --]


Add a /proc/sys/kernel scheduler knob named sched_rr_timeslice_ms
that allows global changing of the SCHED_RR timeslice value. User
visable value is in milliseconds but is stored as jiffies.  Setting
to 0 (zero) resets to the default (currently 100ms).
