Subject: [PATCH 02/11] sched/fair: Optimize select_idle_core()
Date: Wed, 12 Feb 2020 09:36:45 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200212093654.4816-3-mgorman@techsingularity.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200212093654.4816-1-mgorman@techsingularity.net>

From: Srikar Dronamraju <srikar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Currently we loop through all threads of a core to evaluate if the core is
idle or not. This is unnecessary. If a thread of a core is not idle, skip
evaluating other threads of a core. Also while clearing the cpumask, bits
of all CPUs of a core can be cleared in one-shot.

Collecting ticks on a Power 9 SMT 8 system around select_idle_core
while running schbench shows us

(units are in ticks, hence lesser is better)
