Performance and Scalability Microconference Accepted into 2015 Linux Plumbers Conference

Core counts keep rising, and that means that the Linux kernel continues to encounter interesting performance and scalability issues. Which is not a bad thing, since it has been well over ten years since the “free lunch” of exponential CPU-clock frequency increases came to an abrupt end. This microconference will therefore look at futex scaling, […]

The main focus is on programs, scripts, techniques, and core support to help create correct device trees, validate existing […]
