Microconferences at Linux Plumbers Conference: Real-time and Scheduling

Linux Plumbers Conference 2022 is pleased to host the Real-time and Scheduling Microconference

The real-time and scheduling micro-conference joins these two intrinsically connected communities to discuss the next steps together.

Over the past decade, many parts of PREEMPT_RT have been included in the official Linux codebase. Examples include real-time mutexes, high-resolution timers, lockdep, ftrace, RCU_PREEMPT, threaded interrupt handlers and more. The number of patches that need integration has been significantly reduced, and the rest is mature enough to make their way into mainline Linux.

The scheduler is the core of Linux performance. With different topologies and workloads, it is not an easy task to give the user the best experience possible, from low latency to high throughput, and from small power-constrained devices to HPC.

This year’s topics to be discussed include:

  • How to scalqe PREEMPT_RT for very-large systems
  • Improve overall system partitioning for real-time HPC workloads
  • New tools for PREEMPT_RT analysis.
  • How do we teach the rest of the kernel developers how not to break PREEMPT_RT?
  • The usage of PREEMPT_RT on safety-critical systems: what do we need to do?
  • The merge’s status, and how can we resolve the last issues that block the merge.
  • Latency nice scheduling feature
  • Better support for new processors
  • What’s next?

Please come and join us in the discussion of controlling what tasks get to run on your machine and when.

We hope to see you there!
