The SCHED_DEADLINE scheduling policy is all but done. Even though it existed in mainline for several years, many features are yet to be implemented; some are already available as immature code, some others only exist as wishes.

In this talk Juri Lelli and Daniel Bristot De Oliveira will give the audience in-depth details of what’s missing, what’s under development and what might be desirable to have. The intent is to provide as much information as possible to people attending, so that a fruitful discussion might be held later on during hallway and micro conference sessions.

Examples of what is going to be presented are:

  • Non-root usage
  • CGroup support
  • Re-working RT Throttling to use DL servers
  • Better Priority Inheritance (AKA proxy execution)
  • Schedulability improvements
  • Better support for tracing
I agree to abide by the anti-harassment policy Yes
