Subject: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 00/48] xen: add core scheduling support
Date: Fri,  9 Aug 2019 16:57:45 +0200
Message-ID: <20190809145833.1020-1-jgross@suse.com> (raw)

Add support for core- and socket-scheduling in the Xen hypervisor.

Via boot parameter sched-gran=core (or sched-gran=socket)
it is possible to change the scheduling granularity from cpu (the
default) to either whole cores or even sockets.

All logical cpus (threads) of the core or socket are always scheduled
together. This means that on a core always vcpus of the same domain
will be active, and those vcpus will always be scheduled at the same
time.

This is achieved by switching the scheduler to no longer see vcpus as
the primary object to schedule, but "schedule units". Each schedule
unit consists of as many vcpus as each core has threads on the current
system. The vcpu->unit relation is fixed.

I have done some very basic performance testing: on a 4 cpu system
(2 cores with 2 threads each) I did a "make -j 4" for building the Xen
hypervisor. With This test has been run on dom0, once with no other
guest active and once with another guest with 4 vcpus running the same
test. The results are (always elapsed time, system time, user time):

sched-gran=cpu,    no other guest: 116.10 177.65 207.84
sched-gran=core,   no other guest: 114.04 175.47 207.45
sched-gran=cpu,    other guest:    202.30 334.21 384.63
sched-gran=core,   other guest:    207.24 293.04 371.37

The performance tests have been performed with credit2, the other
schedulers are tested only briefly to be able to create a domain in a
cpupool.

Cpupools have been moderately tested (cpu add/remove, create, destroy,
move domain).

Cpu on-/offlining has been moderately tested, too.

The series is based on the series:
"xen/sched: use new idle scheduler for free cpus"
which has been split off from V1.

The complete patch series is available under:

  git://github.com/jgross1/xen/ sched-v2

Changes in V2:
- comments addressed
- some patches merged into one
- idle scheduler related patches split off to own series
- some patches are already applied
- some bugs fixed (e.g. crashes when powering off)

Changes in V1:
- cpupools are working now
- cpu on-/offlining working now
- all schedulers working now
- renamed "items" to "units"
- introduction of "idle scheduler"
- several new patches (see individual patches, mostly splits of
  former patches or cpupool and cpu on-/offlining support)
- all review comments addressed
- some minor changes (see individual patches)

Changes in RFC V2:
- ARM is building now
- HVM domains are working now
- idling will always be done with idle_vcpu active
- other small changes see individual patches
