Subject: [PATCH v2] sched/fair: prefer prev cpu in asymmetric wakeup path
Date: Wed, 28 Oct 2020 18:44:12 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201028174412.680-1-vincent.guittot@linaro.org> (raw)

During fast wakeup path, scheduler always check whether local or prev cpus
are good candidates for the task before looking for other cpus in the
domain. With
  commit b7a331615d25 ("sched/fair: Add asymmetric CPU capacity wakeup scan")
the heterogenous system gains a dedicated path but doesn't try to reuse
prev cpu whenever possible. If the previous cpu is idle and belong to the
LLC domain, we should check it 1st before looking for another cpu because
it stays one of the best candidate and this also stabilizes task placement
on the system.

This change aligns asymmetric path behavior with symmetric one and reduces
cases where the task migrates across all cpus of the sd_asym_cpucapacity
domains at wakeup.

This change does not impact normal EAS mode but only the overloaded case or
when EAS is not used.

- On hikey960 with performance governor (EAS disable)

./perf bench sched pipe -T -l 50000
             mainline           w/ patch
# migrations   999364                  0
ops/sec        149313(+/-0.28%)   182587(+/- 0.40) +22%

- On hikey with performance governor

./perf bench sched pipe -T -l 50000
             mainline           w/ patch
# migrations        0                  0
ops/sec         47721(+/-0.76%)    47899(+/- 0.56) +0.4%

According to test on hikey, the patch doesn't impact symmetric system
compared to current implementation (only tested on arm64)

Also read the uclamped value of task's utilization at most twice instead
instead each time we compare task's utilization with cpu's capacity.

Changes in v2:
- merge asymmetric and symmetric path instead of duplicating tests on target,
  prev and other special cases.

- factorize call to uclamp_task_util(p) and use fits_capacity(). This could
  explain part of the additionnal improvement compared to v1 (+22% instead of
  +17% on v1).

- Keep using LLC instead of asym domain for early check of target, prev and
  recent_used_cpu to ensure cache sharing between the task. This doesn't
  change anything for dynamiQ but will ensure same cache for legacy big.LITTLE
  and also simply the changes.

- don't check capacity for the per-cpu kthread UC because the assumption is
  that the wakee queued work for the per-cpu kthread that is now complete and
  the task was already on this cpu.

- On an asymmetric system where an exclusive cpuset defines a symmetric island,
  task's load is synced and tested although it's not needed. But taking care of
  this special case by testing if sd_asym_cpucapacity is not null impacts by
  more than 4% the performance of default sched_asym_cpucapacity path.

- The huge increase of the number of migration for hikey960 mainline comes from
  teh fact that the ftrace buffer was overloaded by events in the tests done
  with v1.
