Kernel nrjQL 3.15.10-99 with better HyperThread and Realtime

Post by NicCo »

Kernel nrjQL 3.15.10-99 with better HyperThread and Realtime! - with the current SMT Nice 6!

A new technology in the BFS scheduler, better responsiveness and realtime for all PC with HT (HyperThread)
and the kernel will perform in a perfect realtime behaviour... , (despite this may cost 0.1 less cpu throughput)

It's effective only with a PC equipped with Cpus Intel HT(HypeThread) or AMD CMT (Bulldozer/Piledriver)

It improves the performance of foreground applications at the expense of backgound ones,
so your desktop/gui/applications will remain fast even if you run folding@home, mprime, seti@home etc.,
but those background tasks will slow down more.


The News has been announced some days ago, I feel this Topic extremely interesting, read here:
http://ck-hack.blogspot.it/2014/08/smt-nice-3.html
http://ck-hack.blogspot.it/2014/08/smth ... uling.html
......
An even more dramatic example is what happens with realtime tasks, which these days most audio backends on linux use (usually through pulseaudio). Running a realtime task concurrently with a SCHED_NORMAL nice 0 task on a single core means the realtime task will get 100% CPU and the nice 0 task will get zero CPU time. Enable hyperthreading and suddenly the realtime task only runs at 60% of its normal speed even with a heavily niced +19 task running in the background.
......

I have studied immediately the thing and I've already prepared and properly configured our nrjQL flavours, sent to ABF rebuild, now all rpms are available, the different experimental rpms have as release number -99
Kernel-3.15.10-99-ONE > https://abf.rosalinux.ru/kernels_3_15x_ ... .10-99-ONE
Build tasks completed > https://abf.rosalinux.ru/kernels_3_15x_ ... uild_lists

About project:
This is an experimental nrjQL branch with more responsiveness and realtime behaviour, although the overall throughput may be slightly decreased - all this will be noticeable only when we have cpu equipped with HT (HypeThread) > SMT/Hyperthreading, nice and scheduling policies - It improves the performance of foreground applications at the expense of backgound ones, so your desktop/gui/applications will remain fast even if you run folding@home, mprime, seti@home etc., but those background tasks will slow down more.

I've already asked to our friend Mario Moles (our professional realtime tester), if he can execute asap some massive realtime tests with comparisons

If it works fine, we may be also in time to insert this mode in the kernel for 2014.1, just changing the release number from -99 to -1 or -2 (bump version)

I have just installed this advanced kernel into my Ultrabook (no HT equipped):
it boots ok, works fine, none improvments, none regressions and that's good!

I remind you that this kernel release has the HT SMT Nice 6, that is very optimized, polished and mature compared with our first experiment containing the kernel 3.15.8 with SMT Nice 2:
the same BFS scheduler with HT SMT Nice 6 will be used by default from kernel nrjQL 3.16, as default...

Installed 3.15.10-99 on my notebook (Asus X53SD-SX191V); this is my hw:

Code: Select all

There is an increase in startup time compared to build 1:

Startup finished in 4.908s (kernel) + 2.969s (initrd) + 25.968s (userspace) = 33.847s (Boot 2)
Except this, my notebook is more smoothly and look more responsive also with a normal use (web browsing, movie playback with vlc, etc ...).
The stability remains the same, no freeze or strange reaction of system.
Great job NicCo! 8-)

HI!
This is my test:

Code: Select all

[mario@localhost ~]$ inxi
CPU~Quad core AMD A8-3510MX APU with Radeon HD Graphics (-MCP-) clocked at 1800.000 Mhz Kernel~3.15.10-nrjQL-realtime-99omv x86_64 Up~31 min Mem~2048.0/5447.2MB HDD~120.0GB(65.8% used) Procs~222 Client~Shell inxi~1.9.18

HDD=SSD

SW used:
amarok with a pls 5 days;
rosegarden on dssi (audio);
kmid on midi (fluidsynth);
frescobaldi with lilypond in esecution;
chrome and firefox with several tabs each;

RESULT:
EXCELLENT yield of both 1 and 99
xruns zero without having tampered with the file /etc/security/limits.conf.
moral:
for me there is no difference between the two and if there is invisible.
I think now that your kernel has reached such a level that is difficult to capture defects or performance to differ materially.

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------
Now there is the 455 version of bfs scheduler with great speed improvements
and some long time issues that have been squashed and, at the end, solved!


Fixed issues hitting all kernel nrjQL since 3.13 (3.14, 3.14, 3.15 were affected)
All these ugly troubles now are solved!
  • Suspend / Resume lock > it was happening with Atheros WiFi (ath9k)
    making the resume impossible...
  • Dell powersaving not working properly > i8k module lock/not working
  • Ksoftirq provoked slowdowns eating all the 100% of the cpus/cores
  • KVM performances were not so brilliant...

text taken from a msg received in the CK blog
http://ck-hack.blogspot.com/2014/08/bfs ... 5684447625
... it is working perfectly, much faster than the official scaled kernel, the performance is much better, taking 30% less time on the task of converting video, best gaming performance and processes in parallel and indexing faster.
I suggest you to replace the kernel 3.15.10 with the newer rebuild
even if you have already installed it, so remove it and install again,
currently I have rebuilt only 1 flavour, that is kernel-nrjQL-desktop



Tomorrow, I should add another improvement that should gain a 3%
More Info > http://cchalpha.blogspot.it/
-- resched_best_idle() bug fix get 3% performance improvement
After my testing, I'll replace again the 3.15.10 sources and I'll rebuild them once again... :D
I'll let you know...


thanks, for Your attention
bye, NicCo

A new release with the -99.2 as release number:
I suggest you this update, then report feedback!


3.15.10-99 > for Kernel nrjQL (HT/SMT improved)
http://abf-downloads.rosalinux.ru/kerne ... epository/


example:
http://abf-downloads.rosalinux.ru/kerne ... x86_64.rpm

currently available only nrjQL-desktop flavour


In this release we have added some patches from Alex Chen, to be tested:
those are to avoid rescheduling amongst the tasks in status of "idle" and "deactivated"
in this way there will be less things that scheduler should execute, and more speed...

We may esteem a gain about 3% with low cpu load, and some more with high loads


After having used a bit, only a couple of hours, my impressions are full positive,
so far so long, all is really fine and none regressions have been found...

my first impressions are:
- faster webpages loading, faster visualization, and faster tabs switching
- smoother play of Full HD videos, especially with hw not capable of that

New release for kernel 3.15.10 (I remind you that 3.15.10-99.2 has became the official 3.15.10-2, this is 3.15.10-3)
this is intendeed as official update for OpenMandriva Lx 2014.1, if everything will be ok, and then will pass the QA

The most important thing is the adoption of new disk I/O scheduler, BFQ v7r6:
this should diminish the overall boot time, especially with all the fast devices like the SSD, by 5 or more seconds...

For our first tests, I have enabled four flavours only: nrjQL-desktop, nrjQL-realtime, nrjQL-laptop and nrjQL-server

Re: Kernel nrjQL 3.15.10-99 with better HyperThread and Real

Post by andreas »

Non è probabilmente questo il post giusto per la segnalazione, ma ancora non vedo l'annuncio del kernel nrjql-3.15.10-3 per R4 x64.

Appena installata la R4 ho aggiornato il kernel alla 3.15.10-1.1 e mi è sparita da grub la voce relativa a windows. Ho risolto il problema con un update-grub2, che mi ha dato il seguente messaggio:

Windows Boot Manager is not yet supported by grub-mkconfig.

ma in effetti ha creato la voce, questo potrebbe essere un bug non grave da segnalare al team di rosa.

Ieri è arrivato l'ultimo kernel che ho subito installato. Poi ho spento il PC. Oggi ho utilizzato windows. Questa sera, prima di riprendere a lavorare, ho utilizzato un po'rosa ricevendo un aggiornamento del driver di nvidia che si è installato senza problemi.

Quando ho tentato di riavviare windows ho visto che la relativa voce era sparita: poco male, rilancio update-grub2 e risolvo. Purtroppo però il comando viene abortito segnalando l'impossibilità di trovare il modulo efivars. Controllo e in /sys/firmware/efi trovo la direttrice efivars popolata. Per sicurezza lancio efivars -l e il comando viene eseguito correttamente. Anche provando a lanciare grub2-install ottengo lo stesso risultato.

Ripartendo con la versione 3.15.10-1.1 riesco ad eseguire correttamente update-grub2.

A questo punto penso ci sia un bug nell'ultimo kernel (che, nome a parte, ritengo sia uguale a quello che ha dato il nome al thread) o quanto meno nella sua interazione con l'ultimo driver Nvidia. Hai modo di verificare? Ovviamente sono a disposizione per eventuali test.

Ciao e grazie per il tuo splendido lavoro

Ciao e grazie per il tuo splendido lavoro
Mi era stata chiesta una modifica a partire dal 3.15.10-2 da OMA:
due voci del kernel, di cui non ero molto convinto, ma che su archilinux wiki ritenevano indispensabili per un buon funzionamento di EFI

Per non cambiare queste in modo definitivo, ho messo i cambiamenti direttamente sul file di spec, su due righe di cambiamenti al volo

Code: Select all

# requested changes by Colin Close: to test if that may fix the UEFI issues
sed -i -e 's,CONFIG_EFIVAR_FS=m,CONFIG_EFIVAR_FS=y,g' %{patches_dir}/configs/*.config
# https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Unified_Extensible_Firmware_Interface
sed -i -e 's,CONFIG_EFI_VARS=y,CONFIG_EFI_VARS=n,g' %{patches_dir}/configs/*.config
le modifiche leggibili in chiaro sullo spec, praticamente vanno a cambiare al volo, prima di buildare:
CONFIG_EFIVAR_FS=m > da modulo a > CONFIG_EFIVAR_FS=y > ovvero abilitato permanentemente
CONFIG_EFI_VARS=y > da abilitato a > CONFIG_EFI_VARS=n > ovvero disabilitato permanentemente

quindi posso, generare una ulteriore cartella di kernel testing, la chiamo kernel_andreas, poi commento
le due righe e rebuildo un kernel appositamente per il tuo test, ma ti serve per rosa r4 64bit solamente?
(forse le nuove config sono ok per omv lx 2014.1 , ma con rosa r4 vanno bene le precedenti, e se fosse
così, aggiungerò un build condizionale, che possa fare cose differenti in base alla distro per cui builda...)


Ciao, NicCo

Post by andreas »

Si, la uso per rosa x64 che ho sia sul desktop che sul portatile. Mi pare però, dalla tua spiegazione, che il malfunzionamento potrebbe essere attribuito a Rosa, che comunque un paio di bachetti su Grub li ha sempre, mi riferisco sia al savedefault su windows menuentry che alla segnalazione della incapacità di grub-mkconfig di operare con partizioni windows. Potrebbe quindi, se la tua modifica funzionasse con con Openmandriva, essere il caso di aprire un bug con il team di Rosa, che a giudicare dalla frequenza degli aggiornamenti che ricevo, sta ancora affinando la R4. Non so però se sarebbero disposti a lavorare su Kernels non ufficiali, vista la loro politica di rimanere sulle versioni LTS.

Fammi sapere cosa ne pensi.

Grazie

Cosa ne penso?
Che la versione per LX 2014.1 deve avere una configurazione EFI, mentre ROSA ne deve avere una differente, mi vedo costretto a mettere delle configurazioni condizionali a seconda la piattaforma, quindi aggiusterò le cose sui prossimi kernel di mantenimento, lts e non...

Nel frattempo, mi sto deliziando con la versione stabile di:

adesso di nuovo alla caccia delle patches per VMWare... 8-)

Re: Kernel nrjQL 3.15.10-99 with better HyperThread and Real

Post by oiram73 »

HI!
This is my test:

Code: Select all

[mario@localhost ~]$ inxi
CPU~Quad core AMD A8-3510MX APU with Radeon HD Graphics (-MCP-) clocked at Min:800.000Mhz Max:1200.000Mhz Kernel~3.15.10-nrjQL-realtime-3omv x86_64 Up~12:47 Mem~2283.3/5447.4MB HDD~120.0GB(82.7% used) Procs~227 Client~Shell inxi~1.9.18  
[mario@localhost ~]$ 
HDD=SSD

SW used:
amarok with a pls 5 days;
rosegarden on dssi (audio);
kmid on midi (fluidsynth);
frescobaldi with lilypond in esecution;
chrome and firefox with several tabs each;
vlc:
gimp.
RESULT:
EXCELLENT
The only negative is that sometimes when the system boots it seems that the video card driver
does not load properly and you have to move around in the dark to turn off and turn on the computer.
